You Wouldn't Want to Live Without Soap!
Would you rather put your grubby clothes in the washing machine, or take them down to the river and beat the dirt out of them? You're lucky to have the choice! Soaps and detergents are among the great benefits of modern life. They help to keep us comfortable and save us from smelling unpleasant, but above all, they help to protect us from the germs that cause infectious diseases. Learn how soap works, how it is made, and how much harder life would be if we really did have to live without it.
Or would you? Im betting not, especially after reading this series. These interesting books describe exactly what your life would be like if you found yourself in any of these historical situations. The extremely interesting topics and humorous illustrations and captions will captivate young readers while educating them on the very real conditions and aspects of peoples lives in the past. For instance, if you were a civil war soldier, what kind of weapons would you have to use, what is life like in the army, where will you sleep and what will you eat, what happens if you are wounded, and what happened in the famous battles of Gettysburg and Vicksburg? The fun text and variety of funny characters provide lighthearted but factual answers to those questions and share much more about each unique circumstance. Theres a very good chance that you wouldnt want to find yourself in any of these situations; however, youll definitely enjoy reading about them! (Note: although the illustrations are very cartoony, a couple of books in this series may still be a bit graphic for some parents given the nature of the situation.)
This series being revised and will have additional new content including a timeline, originally commissioned maps, "Did You Know" fun facts, and list of related well known events, places or facts.Contact us for availability. ~ Steph/Deanne
