U. S. History Bites
30 Key Events in American History!
U. S. History Bites is a remarkable written work! Written by Solomon Schmidt at only 12 years of age, he has summarized key events in United States history, specifically written for young children.
It includes thirty topics from U.S. history that the author believes all American children should know well. To enhance comprehension, it also includes a glossary of definitions along with review questions for each section.
Parents will find this book serves as a great read-aloud, but can also be enjoyed by independent readers in the earlier grades. Each section is short enough to read as a bedtime story to help introduce children to foundational United States history.
Endorsement from William Potter:
“I am frequently asked how to teach history to young children. I suggest that parents tell stories and give them history in short bites. Solomon Schmidt has done just that with his first book, U.S. History Bites. It is lavishly illustrated with appropriate images and a text that in a few trenchant sentences gets to the essence of the topic and then finishes with a vocabulary and review page, a perfect little book for the youngest person to whom you want to start teaching history.”
“Noah Webster said ‘every child in America should be acquainted with his own country…As soon as he opens his lips he should rehearse the history of his own country—he should lisp the praises of liberty and those illustrious heroes and statesmen who have wrought a revolution in his favor.’ I recommend Solomon’s bit of wisdom to get you started.” — Bill Potter, Historian, Landmark Events
Endorsement from Kirk Cameron:
“Leave it to a 12-year-old to create my kids’ favorite history book this year! A launching pad for the important stuff. Short and sweet. Easy to use and leaves my kids wanting more history! A homeschool dad’s godsend for a topic kids typically find boring. Well done, Solomon!” — Kirk Cameron, Christian Television and Film Producer, Homeschooling father of six children
