julius-cesear-wicked-history Thanks to the friendly people at Scholastic, I can follow up BigB’s reviews of the Wicked History biographies of Francisco Pizarro, Cixi, Genghis Khan and Alexander the Great with a giveaway. Yay!

Scholastic has kindly donated the latest titles in this fun series for independent readers: Napoleon, Julius Caesar, Otto Von Bismark and Alexander the Great. If you’re planning a trip to Italy, France or Germany, these will be a great way to help your child learn about the history of the country before you travel. If you don’t have plans to go anywhere, don’t despair, a good book is always a great vehicle for some excellent armchair family travel.
This giveaway will run from today, March 31st to midnight on April 7th.

This giveaway is now closed.

    I love history in the form of stories and people, but right now we are hooked on a series that talks about locations in the form of stories. The series is “Wright on Time” and it follows a family that travels through the US. We are now reading about caving in Arizona. We also have New Mexico but haven’t started it yet. The author is Lisa M. Cottrell-Bentley. We may be able to travel more and get a taste of world history in the future, but for now this is a good start.

    Gaurdians of Ga’hoole is currently my 10 year old daughter’s favorite it is about a group of owls who have tremendous character development through the series.

    My oldest son LOVES the TinTin books. I love that he loves those. They are so interesting and kind of teach about history and geography in a round about way.

    My two boys just finished reading The Jungle Book by Kipling. I was a little worried it would be over their heads, but they loved it.
