History Books That Won't Put Kids to Sleep

Follow me on:

GlobeOne of the biggest revelations for me when I got out of school was that I actually enjoyed learning about history.

Turned out, it wasn't the topic that was boring -- it was those mealy-mouthed textbooks.

My new article about Teaching Social Studies Without Textbooks suggests some history books that Charlotte Mason fans would call "living books," books that are written to be read for pleasure, not under pressure.

What's your favorite history resource?
