America Becomes a World Power: 1890-1930
Both France and Spain had hoped to build empires in the New World.

About the Graphic U.S. History Series:
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.
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.
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.
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
