24-Hour History 5-Book Set
Our price: $39.95
Some events in history not only unfold rapidly, but their impact can last for generations. That is the premise behind 24-Hour History, a series of beautifully illustrated graphic novels with a focused look at one critical day in US history. In each of the five novels, your child will learn key events that happened in a very short amount of time, but which still have impact today. At the back of each 24-Hour History are short biographies of some of the key characters, timelines, pertinent maps or diagrams, and a glossary. 24-Hour History will provide your reluctant reader an action-packed introduction to key historical events.

review by Roads to Everywhere
”Have you ever contemplated how quickly life can change? Many changes are slow and gradual, but occasionally events come along that happen so unexpectedly and instantaneously… and change our lives forever. This set of books gives a concise overview of five such events from the mid-20th century."Read the Review
I love that TD includes so many graphic novels. My son thinks these are great.
These books have captured my son's (age 9) attention. He will take them everywhere, and has asked if there are more. I would highly recommend.
My daughter (4th) and even my son (who is in 5th) love these books. They have read them all already but plan to read them again when we get to each moment in our history lessons. The work as a great addition the the Story of the World books! I love these additions that help my children explore further into history.
I tried to save these for when we hit the various times in history but my kids devoured these in a week. They each took turns reading through the books and were completely engrossed. I like the topics as they tend to be topics that are harder to find books on to flesh out the time period. My son was asking alot of questions about the various time points which is a great sign! It means his mind is being sparked and intrigued. He is especially interested in Pearl Harbor and Horoshima now.
A favorite of my son's. He loves reading them. He learns a ton and it is engaging. My son is a struggling reader but had no problem reading these this year.
