I ended up buying a bunch of books of Amazon, as well. (I decided to do this because if I always have to wait for our Library's wait list, then we'd never actually do things. I have to have things on hand NOW or otherwise its easy for me to brush off.)
Thanks for the links! Off to look...
If anyone's interested...we already had Sam the Minuteman and George the Drummer boy. Sarah Morton and Samuel Eaton? Check.
Here's the full list of what I ordered...my kids are 5 and 7. I ordered coloring books for them for Revolutionary/Colonial times as well.
*Story of the American Revolution
*Life on the Mayflower
*Sew What, Betsy Ross
*You Wouldn't Want to Sail With Christopher Columbus
*Life in Colonial America
*The Courage of Sarah Noble
*Will You Sign Here, John Hancock?
*You Wouldn't Want to be a Salem Witch (for October)
*Can't You Make Them Behave, King George?
*The Legend of Sleepy Hollow (For October...this was set during Revolutionary Times and we already had the Dover Coloring book)
*If You Lived in Colonial Times
*Revolutionary War on Wednesday
*Alice Ray and the Salem Witch.
I'm hoping to do Columbus and the first explorers during September and then onto the early colonial times. October will be Salem Witch (and Sleepy Hollow, we're Hallo-nuts here) and then go backwards again for Thanksgiving to Pilgrims/Natives/Mayflower. Then off to the Revolution!
I know several of these are historical fiction...but need things to keep them interested. We'll do maps (they love maps) as well....
