Black Potatoes by Susan Campbell Bartoletti

Black Potatoes is a nonfiction account of the Irish potato famine. I learned quite a bit reading it. Scattered throughout are lovely pictures depicting scenes from during the famine from around the country. On occasion it was hard to follow, though. I recommend this book to middle grade and up kids and adults who are learning about or interested in the potato famine.
