Bede's History of US
Bede is a timeline...who strongly resembles a ball of yarn. This lovable character introduces young children to the basics of timelines and history in a fun way. A few of the topics discussed include Columbus Day, the Great Awakening, George Washington, Ben Franklin, Lewis & Clark, Abraham Lincoln, the Wild West, the history of flight, the history of inventions, famous American artists, and more.
The perfect preparation for serious history study when they are ready. Also an in-depth, state history lapbook project. Bede’s History of US is just the thing for teaching first-time historians the importance of timelines and how God works in time.

I love how simple and fun these lessons are. We are doubling up this year along with Story if the World vol 1 and the balance has been great so far. We are located on the east coast so I wanted something simple to provide a basic framework for visiting historical sites, even if my kids aren’t ready to dive in too deep to American history yet.
The kids love this book! The lessons are short (only a page or two long), most are interactive in some way, the pages are extremely colorful. I was often asked to do more than one lesson a week. What a way to get a child into loving history!
We love the Bede's series. We wanted "Bede's History of Us" because though we study history using a chronological approach and are in the middle ages, we also live in America. This book helps ensure our kids had a basic broad understanding of American History. Bede's books seem to move quickly, are fun, and super cute. I would have to recommend this one.
My kids love Bede! They always ask to read this book and do the activities. Definitely a good purchase.
My daughter absolutely loves this! It is something she looks forward to doing and even asks if we can do extra each day. I would highly recommend it.
