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.
Elspeth Leacock has created several history and geography books for young people with her writing partner, Susan Buckley. She lives in Brooklyn, New York.
Randy Jones was trained as an artist in Canada, where he created award-winning illustrations for books for children and adults. Since he moved to New York, his work has appeared in major publications such as the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Wall Street Journal, and Newsweek.
