21st Century Kids: Travel Through Time

Mona Gilbert, Children's Librarian, Northridge Branch Library,
Young person in time travel adventure

The fantasy of manipulating time is a theme in many books for kids. It would be amazing to travel back in time and make different decisions that impact the future. This time travel journey is possible through books, as creative authors can transport a reader to the past, present and future. Even if you are not a fan of science fiction, the trip is worth taking. Here are some books that will move you beyond the present and into another time dimension.
