History

“We are not makers of history. We are made by history.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.

History is a critically important subject for children to learn. Where we have been informs us as to how to proceed forward to where we want to go—and where we do not want to go. We are pleased to offer an array of resources to teach children history, both through direct instruction but also, significantly, through stories, both real and fictionalized.

When children immerse themselves in a good story, they learn what it was like to be there, in that time, in that place, in those circumstances. There is no better way to understand history than to live it through the characters in a good book, so we strive to recreate that experience for every child who wants to learn more about what has come before.
