The Mystery of History

imagesHomeschool mom and author Mary Potter Kenyon wrote an enthusiastic review of a history book for kids, The Smart Aleck’s Guide to American History by Adam Selzer, and her excitement is contagious:
“This book, this children’s book, has me enraptured. It is this irreverent style of writing that I have searched high and low for that has me picking up the book over and over the past few days. And I am learning! I am learning about historical facts and figures (figures being people, in this case) that I never knew, or if I did, I had long forgotten about. And I care! That I actually care is amazing to me. Could it be that for all these years I was just reading the wrong books?”
