History- It's in Between These Pages!
If reading in a history text book bores you, but you are interested in the American Revolution, I suggest you turn to the books! I had this problem myself , being interested in this time period but hated doing lots of research. When I began the bookk Johnny Tremain, by esther forbes, I realized that historical fiction can be mentally enrichin. As you sit ther reading a well-written book, imformation is seeping into your brain. From there on it is stored for refrencer in tests and for impressing teachers. I have written summaries of some great books for you to enjoy. Sit back, make some hot chocolate, and enjoy your Americanheritage.
