    I am planning to follow Mod 5 Early Modern Epistle History Guide, my only changes being we aren’t doing the geography/bible day (using other materials.) I would like to add a couple other books, but I have a tendency to try to pack too much in. I am so excited to begin early Am history and I purchased the Yesterday’s Classics collection for my Kindle, so now I find I have too many titles to choose from! Help me narrow them down! What are your favorites? Are any of these duplicates to what Stories of America (Sonya Shafer)will provide? My children are 5, 6, 8, and 10. Here are some I’m considering:

    Stories of Great Americans for Little Americans

    American History Stories

    Stories of the Pilgrims

    Richard of Jamestown

    Peter of Amsterdam

    America First

    Boys and Girls of Colonial Days



    We’ll be in that time next fall and I’m using American History Stories by Pratt for our spine for part of the year (volumes 1, 2, and 31 chapters of vol 3 before we move into pioneers with Little House on the Prairie series). Mine this fall will be 12, 8, 7, 5, 4, 2, 1, newborn.

    My advice – open each one and read part of it yourself to find which ones you like the style of best. That’s what I’ve done.

    Also, we read Stories of the Pilgrims as a family about every other year in November. Great booK!


    I agree with Tristan, I would read a few chapters in each book and get a feel for it, maybe even let the kids read it too and see what they think.


    We’ve read Stories of Great Americans, Stories of the Pilgrims, and Boys and Girls of Colonial Days.  From what I recall, they are pretty much stand alone chapters, so you could pick an choose some from each book.  My DC enjoyed all of them.
