I’ve always loved learning about history, so it’s great when I get the opportunity to recommend books that teach children about history in a fun way. And what could be more fun than the Peanuts gang, created by Charles M. Schulz? Your favorite Peanuts characters -- Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Sally, Peppermint Patty and more -- have shown up in three children’s books by Regnery Kids (an imprint of Regnery Publishing, Inc.). They are:
Who Cares, Charlie Brown? by Charles M. Schulz. This touching ode to some of the world’s great humanitarian heroes -- including one forgotten hero who helped little kids! -- will warm hearts and inspire. Book includes presentations on great humanitarian heroes and activity pages.
What's the Big Idea, Charlie Brown? by Charles M. Schulz. Rediscover history’s great inventions -- and learn about a very important inventor you’ve never even heard of before -- in this fun and enlightening new Peanuts story. The book includes presentations on great inventors and activity pages.
Where Did You Go, Charlie Brown? by Charles M. Schulz. Retrace the remarkable journeys of men and women who tread new ground -- including one woman you’ve never heard of before -- in this exciting new Peanuts adventure. Book includes presentations on great explorers and activity pages.
These stories are so much fun that kids won’t even mind they’re learning about history. They may recognize some of the inventors, explorers, and heroes showcased in these books, but others will be new to them. (For example, do you know who invented the chocolate chip cookie?) Pages in the back of each book provide more in-depth information on the people profiled, and make an excellent resource for children’s reports and presentations. And kids will relate to the Peanuts gang’s adventures, from playing baseball to exploring the great outdoors. These beautiful hardcover books make welcome gifts for children and teachers, too!
