No matter how you teach history, one of the most engaging and fun ways to learn history is to read historical books for kids. I listed a few of our favorite history books below. Along with researching the best history curriculum, and traveling to historical sites and history museums, there’s nothing like reading historical biographies for kids. These are some great historical biography picture books to make history come alive for your little learners. I follow up historical story books with discussion and hands on activities that complement the books we’re reading in our homeschool history curriculum.
