I have started a series called 'Simple History'. These books are for kids and intended to be quickly read as an introduction to historical subjects. They are fun eye catching and collectible. :)

Where did you find these at?  How are you liking them so far?  I have an almost 7 yr old so am pretty interested in hearing what you think :)

They are fantastic introductions to history subjects and good preperation before they learn it at school (written by a history graduate). There also pg friendly no violent imagery like Horrible Histories or history books for older kids.

These are great. As a teacher I would use them in class as free reads and as a mom I would get them for my kids. I love finding new was to teach and these books look fun as well as being a teaching tool.

They look interesting to me.  I don't have any children that would be interesting, but once in a while I do read a children's book to get a little information on a subject.

I just looked on amazon; some of the kindle editions are free.  clapping
