One of the things my daughter has most enjoyed about All American History is learning more about former presidents. She often stops her reading to comment on a particular president and his greatest accomplishments.
For example, today Kaylee was reading about Calvin Coolidge (L. 18). She stopped and read this fact aloud: “. . . his administration succeeded in reducing the national debt by about a billion dollars a year during his presidency.”
If your children aren’t excited to share what they are learning in history with you, you’re missing out! I LOVE learning with my daughter as she reads through her All American History text!
