Young Patriot Series

Patria Press, Inc. recently sent along a note to tell us about their Young Patriot Series. They wrote:

The Young Patriots Series hooks kids on history by telling the story of famous poeple when THEY were young,” notes Young Patriots Series creator Florrie Kichler. Originally

published 50 years ago, the Young Patriots Series titles were known by millions of babyboomers as the “organge biographies” because of their bright orange covers. Ms.

Kichler founded her company with the mission of reintroducing the old seriers, long since out of print, to today’s children.
