Biographies For Kids Giveaway



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.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!

    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.

    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.
