John Adams "Independence Forever" by Janet & Geoff Benge Jan 26, 2005
I don't think the recommended age for any books written by Janet and Geoff Benge be limited to high school age. These books are packed with chronological details and additive stories. You can't put them down until you are finished. John Adams wanted to be a farmer and his father insisted he get a good education. Who knew he would be one our most important founding fathers? You will soon discover details of John's life that leads up to him being a great man. All curiosity about the subjects of the "Heroes of History" books is satisfied because the authors start at the beginning of their lives until the very end. They are quick reads - packed with valuable, well-researched life stories. I recommend that any age group start ordering these books, and if you want to get your kids hooked on historical figures, this is the way to go. You will want to read everything they have penned.
