Uncover Exciting History

 We are studying American History in our homeschool this year, so when the Review Crew was offered 4 different books from Golden Prairie Press I knew which one I should pick. They all looked really good and I am thinking of ordering Heroines of the Past Bible Study while it is on sale.

Uncover Exciting History reveals America's Christian Heritage in short, Easy-to-Read Nuggets. I received  PDF format of the book. It was very easy to download to my computer and then I emailed it to my Kindle Fire. I have been reading this aloud to all three of the girls (age 7, 10, & 11). We started out reading about Christopher Columbus & the Pilgrims with the book taking us all the way to the Great Depression & the Navajo Code Talkers in 25 chapters. There are 4 bonus chapters that tell us about Marco Polo, David Livingstone, Robert Falcon Scott, & Mothers Who Changed the World Through Their Children. At the end of each chapter you can dig a little deeper with questions, map activities, book recommendations, and even time appropriate cookbooks. 

This book makes for a great read aloud with my kids, it reads like a book instead of a textbook. The chapters are fairly short but contain a lot of information. We all really like that there are people included in this book that we have never heard of & now my girls want to know more about some of them. Amy Puetz makes us feel that the people are real by showing us a side of them we don't normally think about. Like the price that the Founding Fathers paid to sign the Declaration of Independence. 

Uncover Exciting History is a 184 page Ebook available in the PDF, MOBI, or EPUB format. The regular price is $14.95, but it is on sale until September 1, 2012 for $11.96. It is also available as a 6 X 9 paperback book for $18.95 with the sale price of  $15.16. There is also an MP3 audio book for $25.00 with the sale price of $20.00.

Amy Puetz is a homeschool graduate and servant of Christ. She loves history & has always loved to learn about historical events and people who impacted their generation. Her company Golden Prairie Press was started when she wrote a historical costume book & then other historical books from a Christian perspective.

Amy has written several other books, and the Review Crew had the privilege of reviewing Costumes with Character e-book, Ten Girls from History e-book, Heroines of the Past Bible Study e-book. Sail over to the Crew Blog to read reviews on them.
