Childhood of Famous Americans Alphabetical List!!!!!

I love it when you can combine more than one subject at a time, and I think it's essential to homeschooling more than one kid. It would be impossible for me to take 4 different hours each day with all 4 of my kids who are homeschooling, as well as tackle household things, work 20 hours a week from home in the mornings and keep track of Samuel!

That's what I love about the Childhood of Famous American series of books. It combines Language Arts with history in an engaging way, not like a boring textbook. Here's a list of the entire series of books. I hope to print it out and cross them off as we read them as a family. Some are Easy Readers and fast to get through. Some are full books. Enjoy!
