Do you have a child who hates reading, especially reading about history? If so, your solution may be to read the books out loud to your children - a wonderful answer, though a bit taxing on you as the parent. What teaching parent is looking for more work?
Here is an even better solution that will free you from reading aloud while still giving your children access to Henty's excellent literature. Each lively, professionally-recorded, and unabridged edition includes a single MP3-format CD for up to 13 HOURS of listening time PER BOOK. These books are professionally read by Jim Hodges. Now you can have your children listen and learn while you tackle your never-ending “to-do” list.
More about Henty's historical novels…
If you also are looking for history books for your older children, books that will be historically accurate and will stretch their minds, but will not compromise your family's standard of decency, you will be very pleased to learn about the works of G.A. Henty (1832-1902).
Known as "The Boy's Own Historian," his historical epics are profoundly factual stories that highlight some of the greatest people and moments in history. Written to satisfy young men's insatiable hunger for adventure, Henty's stories can be equally riveting for your daughters.
Each story revolves around a fictional boy hero who is diligent, courageous, and intelligent. Where needed, these boys fought wars, sailed seas, prospected for gold, and aided in the overthrow of evil empires. Through Henty's heroes, your child will meet historically strategic leaders and acquire an awareness of the cultures of various European and pagan civilizations.
Note: in accordance with the period in which they were written, there are a couple of books where an occasional derogatory term is used.
This title is a complete, unabridged recording of a classic G. A. Henty historical novel, produced on an MP3 file format CD.
These are computer CD's. The audio files will play on your computer CD drive, a DVD player (even the portable ones you take in the car with you!), a laptop computer CD drive, or on an MP3 compatible CD player. They can also be transferred to your mp3 player. They will not, however, play on a standard CD player.

AD 1570-72, France, the Roman Catholic / Calvinist Protestant religious wars.
On August 24, 1572, St. Bartholomew's Eve, more than 2000 French Huguenotsůmen, women, and childrenůwere massacred for their faith. In St. Bartholomew's Eve, Henty vividly depicts Coligny's unflinching bravery, Queen Elizabeth's vacillating foreign policy, Catherine de Medici's vindictive scheming, and the Queen of Navarre's inner strength as he recounts the adventures of sixteen-year-old Phillip Fletcher, son of an Englishman and a Frenchwoman, who journeys to France to take part in the Huguenots' struggle for freedom. Intrepid and resourceful, he and his band of soldiers see much combat, and Phillip's skill as a swordman and a marksman is required innumerable times before he returns as a hero to England. Date: 1580
