I am so excited to offer another great history book by Edward Eggleston! This book, originally published in 1888, is full of solid early American History. It starts with Christopher Columbus…progresses through the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, and ends in 1888. There are over 60 chapters of historical information for you and your children to enjoy, along with over 400 detailed black and white illustrations and maps throughout the book. Another bonus, is that after each chapter there are definitions of key words, study questions, and map work! Some of the chapters include fill-in-the-blank exercises for review. A complete index at the end of the book will assist you in finding anything you need in this book!
This book was originally in 6″x9″ format; however, I wanted to make the print and illustrations larger so the book would be easier to read and use by you and your children. So, this book is in 8 1/2″ x 11″ format. This book would make a great American History spine to read aloud with your children…or hand it to your children to read on their own!
