The love of history and reading grew together in my house. I grew up reading about history and visiting historical sites. History and books inspired conversations and trips. I have fond memories of historical fiction from that the described Revolutionary- Era Boston and took me across the great plains in a covered wagon. I could share in their experiences and enjoy their adventures.
As a teacher and a parent I have had the chance to share the love of reading about history and visiting historical sites with a new generation. From the Magic Tree House series to Bud not Buddy; I have continued to share books about history written for young readers and young adults.
The young readers of today benefit from the growth of books being published about history for them. Books published about history or with historical themes continue to grow.
