Cool History Books
I just got done reading this aloud to my homeschooled 6th grade twins. What a treasure! The author weaves together mathematical and scientific principles into a delightful story format. My kids had no trouble understanding the well-illustrated concepts. We used this book in our unit study on Ancient Greece

Genevieve Foster has a wonderful way of taking a character in history and forming the story around what was happening around the world while that character was living! What a great way to look at history by the slice! Along with George Washington's World, Foster wrote similar books during the time of Lincoln, William Penn, Augustus Caesar, and others.
