Heroes and Happenings Volume 2

by Amy Lykosh Author

Introduce your kindergarten student to American History with this age-appropriate, richly illustrated spine. Sixty chapters, across two volumes, introduce children to a wide range of people and events. Some of them are well known, like Thomas Edison and Theodore Roosevelt. Some are far more obscure like Temple Grandin, the autistic professor who transformed how people manage cattle. You’ll cover several presidents, the World Fair, and the Statue of Liberty. You’ll learn about events in almost every one of the 50 states. You’ll learn about people from a range of religions and ethnicities, with diverse skin colors and contributions. For animal lovers, we have a chapter with the story of an amazing dog.
