I enjoy reading historical books. I’ve said it before, and I will probably say it again. History can be so interesting when taught through the lives of real people, doing real things. I’m not talking about textbook regurgitation–oh NO– but “living books”, as Charlotte Mason called them. Living books are books that well, come to life when you read them! They engage you, draw you in and make you want to know more.
Since tomorrow is my last day of freebies, I wanted to make every one count. Don’t forget you’ve only got through midnight tomorrow to download all of the titles from this week, because they will disappear Friday night!
Today’s freebie is all about American history, and has something for all ages. :) (downloads expired)
