Kids American History Books:
Make History Come Alive!

American history books for kids are a powerful way to personalize distant time periods. All that "history stuff" happened so long ago that it can be hard for kids to see its importance or relate to the people. Selecting awesome history books can be the perfect, kid-friendly antidote for those children who have not yet caught the history bug! :)

Well-chosen children's history books are not only great resources for teaching history lessons; they also can bring these "long ago" events and people to life when part of a required reading list.  We've seen it firsthand and so have countless other teachers and parents. It is so exciting to see kids light up because of it!  Really...we just can't say enough good things about the power of great kids books to bring history ALIVE!  We love historical fiction ourselves, and have found that children's / young adult historical fiction books can often be just as compelling as those for use grown ups.
