Another Great Reader Mar 7, 2010
Just an outstanding history for children to dig into. We have a 7 and a 9 year old that love these series.
Wonderful series of books Feb 13, 2009
The Childhood of Famous American series are excellent tools to help kids learn about history and great people who have lived. My 11 year old son and 9 year old daughter have both enjoyed reading these books, and now have some admirable heros to look up to! After reading about Thomas Jefferson, my son said--I hope I can become a great man someday! So, both educational, and inspirational! Easy reading that is appealing to children.
