The Fun Way To Learn History
Some children have seemingly insatiable appetites when it comes to history; others flee at the mere mention of it. On whichever end of the spectrum your child lays, graphic novels make a great fit. For the child who thrives on history but is not quite ready for pages and pages of plain type, Graphic U.S. History will retain his passion for the subject matter by providing small amounts of relevant text and scores of inviting illustrations.

Engaging and Easy to Read
You will find that the reading and rereading of these books with such memorable visuals will cement into young minds a timeline of American history much more lasting than any text-only manuscript can. And for the child who balks at history, imagine his delight this year when history is not a weighty tome of boring and difficult text but instead Graphic U.S. History; a series of engaging, easy to read graphic novels that will embed in him vital historical events in American history from 1500 to the present.

1500's Through Barack Obama's Inauguration
Using striking and colorful graphics, these Graphic U.S. History books are stuffed with intriguing historical facts but none of the banality typical to the subject matter. Full-color throughout, each history title is 54 pages. Beginning with the New World in the 1500's and continuing through Barack Obama's inauguration, there are 12 titles in this extraordinary series. Individual titles are also available.

A Touch of Whiteout May be Necessary
Reading level is about fourth grade; interest level is about second through twelfth grade. Printed by a secular company, you should know that throughout the entire 12-book series you will find a couple instances of what we consider inappropriate language. Isolated to a word or two, a touch of whiteout easily rectifies the matter. If your time is too precious to read each book before your child, you will be delighted to know that we have listed the pages with questionable words below:

The Fight For Freedom: Pgs. 26, 29 & 53
Before the Civil War: Pg. 10
The Civil War: Pgs. 6, 44 & 51
The Industrial Era: Pgs. 33 & 35
America Becomes a World Power: Pgs. 3, 18 & 19
World War II & The Cold War: Pg. 2
The Civil Rights Movement & Vietnam: Pg. 38

    So hard to talk myself into this purchase ...

    Not a fan of "graphic novels". But I was desperate to get a "reluctant reader" something they could handle. So the aforementioned child (10 yr. old) pretended disinterest until the younger brother (7) said "I want them!" Suddenly she was reading without arm twisting! Sibling rivalry can produce a good result!

    Amazing Set!

    After reading the Revolutionary War graphic novel, my 9yo was hooked on graphic novels and requested this set for Christmas. He was THRILLED on Christmas morning! He has already read and reread through them all and retained enough information to carry conversations about what he has learned with the adults in his life and enjoys telling his peers about them too.

    The only history my LD/ADHD son likes

    I have the HMH magazines with a digital subscription and a Shell Learning one page a day history resource book. But Graphic U.S. History is the only form of history he will pay attention to. He even asks for the books. I like that this series includes real history, like slavery and the murder of natives, but in an age-appropriate manner.
