History is interesting. I didn’t used to think so. My eighth grade American history teacher was so not fascinating that he used to hurl the chalk eraser across the room so that the resounding “bam!” of it hitting the blackboard would snap us out of our drowsy state. I am not making this up! Many years later I discovered that the right books draw you into history and awaken in you a curiosity. And several years after that I had children and discovered the joy of reading to them. With this blog I want to share with you the history books and activities that my children and I have most enjoyed.

  1. Hee hee! I remember teachers throwing chalk to keep us awake, too. I hated history... so dry and boring... until I started reading children's books with my daughter. History is so fascinating!!! And, as you can probably tell, I love your blog! I think I made it through the whole thing! :-)
