Category Description for First Person History Series:

Learn about significant events and times in US history through firsthand accounts told through diary entries of children who lived during the era. This collection would be a marvelous supplemental add on to an early American history curriculum. Because these books regularly feature the actual words or diary entries of period writers, there are occasional interesting misspellings, most with pronunciations included that help to paint the flavor of the era and create a feeling of genuineness to the author. Photos, vocabulary words, a glossary, timelines, and questions for critical thinking are options included in these interesting books. The pictures are colorful and representative of the era. ~Judy
