This 261 page book holds a 1900 copyright and was thought of as the ‘first book on American history used in schools in preparation for… more ‘formal’ textbook learning.’ It is however not for young readers. It is not a textbook but rather reads as an informational book that explains the history of the United States and is best read by 5th -8th graders but can also be used by high school students as a reference as well! It would be a good addition to read along side your normal curriculum.
