We have adapted Pratt-Chadwick's lovely little book into a series of workbooks. These offer an introductory history of the U.S.A., from the landings of the Vikings in 1000 C.E., through the Civil War (1861-1865). Native American histories are included in the stories of Montezuma II and of Leaping Wolf. Language, grammar, etc., have been updated for modern readers.
These workbooks are wonderful for classroom use, as they contain informational texts, valuable recall questions, handwriting and spelling practice, and much more. They are also valuable as a cherished supplement for those children whose minds desire to stay active.
