Let’s Go Aboard an Atomic Submarine
Submitter: Let’s not and say we did!
Holly: Sally and Joey sure look excited for their vacation, though! Nice cover art. This children’s book explains what nuclear submarines are and how they work. Atomic energy was all the rage in the 50’s and 60’s, so kids back then probably loved this kind of thing. It was probably the equivalent of today’s kids reading about…wait, today’s kids are more interested in playing Atomic Submarine Kill Zone Spectacular for whatever game console they have. (I made that up – it doesn’t exist!) Really, though, what IS the use of this book in a public library children’s section now?
