Each fact-driven, yet easy-to-read page offers reliable information useful for reports. Black-and-white and color illustrations provides the visual background essential for young readers to imagine historical events.

"Stories in American History" will be included on Enslow's Spring 2012 list of new books. Library-bound editions of each title will be available to schools and libraries for $23.95 (a 25% discount from Enslow's list price).
