Rush Limbaugh and his Rush Revere historical series for children ( NYT best seller list )...

I heard a great testimonial on Limbaugh's Nat'l radio show...A 40 yr.old highly educated female M.D. admitted to reading and learning so much about American History from this " children's " book, simply because she hadn't payed attention in school...

I can relate, Same here!...I had the most BORING teachers, all they were interested in was " memorization " by rote...dates, places, etc, that had no significance to me..............as a result, " History " was always a very low grade for me!

That has been a really good series so far! Good option indeed! :D

I may read it myself, I'm ashamed to say that I have vast patches of ignorance re American History due to it not being " palatable " during my school days...

I've come to enjoy / appreciate history, no thanks to them...

Latest Review: "Blood Blossom" by Daryl Hajek

Lloyd Alexander-The Chronicles of Prydain series. It includes The Book of Three and The Black Cauldron.
I starting reading these in elementary school and have read them so many times over the years, I have to keep replacing my copies.

Another good author is Sharon Creech. Many of her books are written from a young girls pov, but the lesson and the morals are very gender neutral.

When I was younger I was a fan of a little bit older series, such as:

Charlie Bone mysteries
Red wall series
The Divide series
The Series of Unfortuante Events was phenomenal
The Hardy Boys
Nancy Drew
Goosebumps
The Inkheart series
Wishbone books

A lot of these are young adult...but read them to your children! My mother read to me everynight and I have to say my love for books hasn't dwindled yet.

I've heard of most of these names but this thread has listed some I never heard of. I've been getting a lot of recommendations lately. I now have WAY too many books that I have to look for and read! :reading-3:
