The Fun Way To Learn History
Some children have seemingly insatiable appetites when it comes to history; others flee at the mere mention of it. On whichever end of the spectrum your child lays, graphic novels make a great fit. For the child who thrives on history but is not quite ready for pages and pages of plain type, Graphic American History will retain his passion for the subject matter by providing small amounts of relevant text and scores of inviting illustrations.

Engaging and Easy to Read
You will find that the reading and rereading of these books with such memorable visuals will cement into young minds a timeline of American history much more lasting than any text-only manuscript can. And for the child who balks at history, imagine his delight this year when history is not a weighty tome of boring and difficult text but instead Graphic American History; a series of engaging, easy to read graphic novels that will embed in him vital historical events in American history from 1500 to the present.

1500's Through Barack Obama's Inauguration
Using striking and colorful graphics these Graphic American History books are stuffed with intriguing historical facts but none of the banality typical to the subject matter. Four-color throughout, each history title is 56-pages. Beginning with the New World in the 1500's and continuing through Barack Obama's inauguration, there are 13 titles in this extraordinary series. Individual titles are also available.

A Touch of Whiteout May be Necessary
Reading level is about fourth grade; interest level is about second - twelfth grade. Printed by a secular company you should know that throughout the entire 13-book series you will find a couple instances of what we consider inappropriate language. Isolated to a word or two, a touch of whiteout easily rectifies the matter. If your time is too precious to read each book before your child, you will be delighted to know that we have listed the pages with questionable words below:

The Fight For Freedom: Pgs 26, 29 & 53
Before the Civil War: Pg 10
The Civil War: Pgs 6, 44 & 51
The Industrial Era: Pgs 33 & 35
America Becomes a World Power: Pgs 3, 18 & 19
World War II & The Cold War: Pg 2
The Civil Rights Movement & Vietnam: Pg 38
  • Full-color drawings engage the reader

    Got my money's worth May 14, 2014
    Reviewer: spacemoneky1138  
    I bough these for my high schoolers to peruse at their leisure. They sat on the shelf awhile and I thought maybe I had wasted my money. But my 16 year old son got around to discovering them, and now he reads them EVERY SINGLE DAY while he eats his lunch. For over 6 months straight they have been part of his daily routine. I have no idea how many times he has read them, but I feel I got my money's worth!

    Great for reluctant readers! July 23, 2013
    Reviewer: Sonja  
    We used these books as a broad U.S. History overview for our 10 year old. He enjoyed reading through the books and would often read ahead out of curiousity. These books also sparked many thoughtful discussions. I enjoyed learning new facts right alongside my son. We loved how the books followed a chronological order of events. It really helped our son get a better feel for what happened, when, and in what context. We also like the fact that these are small books and can be taken along in the car or in situations where we had time to do just a little school (waiting rooms, doctor appointments, etc). Learning about history can happen anywhere! We look forward to passing these on to our 5 other children over the next several years. Great product!

    Draw readers in with these! June 1, 2012
    Reviewer: Notebooking Mom  
    Our family loves these graphic novels (all the sets sold by Timberdoodle). We have four boys and four girls ranging in age from 15 down to 18 months. While the younger kids love them because they're so colorful, the older kids love how they can get a synopsis of an historical event or person in a very interesting way. Even my reluctant readers or non-history buffs are drawn to these great books. They are short, colorful and easy to read. Another great benefit we have found is using them as a supplement to our living books history curriculum. For example, after reading The Travels by Marco Polo, I had my teenagers read the Marco Polo graphic novel in order to help get more of a visual idea of what they had just read and to aid in their understanding and retention.
