Description

Feel what it is like to participate in history as you follow in the footsteps of the young men and women who lived it. You will survive a harsh James Towne winter and battle the Redcoats in a Long Island cornfield; you will carry letters on the Pony Express and plant crops with Laura Ingalls; you will stow away on a whaling ship and help in the defense after the attack on Pearl Harbor. With hundreds of visual and verbal facts, each story in Kids Make History has been thoroughly researched and meticulously illustrated.
