    1. A wonderful forest view of American history. This book is of a higher reading level than "Our Island Home", so it can be slower reading. For a book written in 1917, it has aged well, though students will need to be reminded that the book was written during WWI and references to "of all the presidents" doesn't include any presidents past Woodrow Wilson (who was President when this was published). I also found later chapters can loose their whimsy as they consist of a meld of the list of President [...]

    2. Got through Chapter 56 and calling it a day. I just can't see any point in subjecting myself to the bias any more. Please, please, please pre-read this before starting it with your children. Marshall was of her time, and relatively open minded in that context. As an adult, I can fully appreciate that. But she was a racist nonetheless, and young children can't really understand what that idea "of her time" even means. Such context requires a fundamental understanding of history *first*.The sheer [...]

    3. I am reading this aloud to my 7-year-old son for our U.S. History. We started last year.What I Like:He loves reading it. If we haven't read from it in a while, he requests it.It focuses in pretty good detail on the history of the founding of the United States of America.It uses very big, uncommon words. Adults think that there's no way a young child will follow along or understand them, but I think we are seeing evidence that our son does get a lot out of it, part of which is a larger vocabulary [...]

    4. Recommended for American history for homeschoolers. Concise chapters made it easy for my boys to listen. From Viking exploration to President Wilson, this book helped us learn in depth stories of our country. I particularly enjoyed the stories of the first colonies, and was startled by the continued upstarts and failures of them! This was a school book we all enjoyed and learned from. Well layed out stories by chapter, but my copy had lots of typos:(

    5. This wasn't quite as entertaining to me as "Our Island Story", but I still loved it!! It had so many cool details that I never got to hear from my normal history books. I loved hearing more of the French, Spanish, and Indian perspectives of our country and hear more about the men and women who have shaped our nation. Definitely a fun read.

    6. This is a good general American History book, and that's what we used it for. It begins at the very beginning with exploration, not native americans, and ends at the beginning of the 20th Century.

    7. Just started this and I already love it. Can't wait to read it to the kids. This is an excellent resource to accompany United States history studies. Engaging and entertaining. Thanks, Zelda.

    8. AMAZINGi LOOOOOOOVED THIS BOOK!!!!!its a great way to learn us history. I cant tell you how much I loved this book.Your just gonna have yourself.😋

    9. A good introduction to American history. Although I do thought that the author was repetitive in some points, it's not bad of a book at all, given that is was first published in 1917.

    10. This book goes into a lot of detail about our country's history, but it is heavily biased, so I find we need a lot of discussion with this one.

    11. This is my first reading of US history in English. It is very interesting. But it is only wrote to WWI :(
