History & Me is a workbook of historic figures and family research. In addition to teaching children in the 2nd grade age range about historic figures, there are also a lot of fun activities throughout the book. It starts out with teaching about biographies and has an area for the child to answer questions about themselves that would be the start of their own biography! The book teaches about women in history, all while teaching your child reading comprehension skills as each short biography is followed up with a few questions about what they just read. The American Heroes section has a lot of fun word scrambles to help answer the questions following each of the biographies. Presidential Potpurri has a bunch of fun activities throughout while teaching about some of the more famous presidents. After you trace your roots in the final chapter of the book, you will have everything that you need in order to write your autobiography!
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
