Using a lively question and answer format, the “If You Lived…” series addresses many important topics throughout history. The role of children in the historic events is emphasized so that your kids can really relate to the descriptions and feel some connection with the people of that period.
The layout of each book in the series flows in a way that you can skip around in the book and stretch it out over a several history lessons. This series covers many events from American History that will help your children relate to the specific time period.
