The Childhood of Famous Americans

Using simple language that children ages 8 - 12 can understand, these lively, inspiring, and believable biographies look at the childhood of Famous Americans. The Childhood of Famous Americans series, seventy-five years old in 2007, chronicles the early years of famous American men and women in an accessible manner. Each book is faithful in spirit to the values and experiences that influenced the person's development - with a focus on "doing what is right" and the consequences of "doing wrong." History is fleshed out with fictionalized details, and conversations have been added to make the stories come alive to today's reader, but every reasonable effort has been made to make the stories consistent with the events, ethics, and character of their subjects.

These books reaffirm the importance of our American heritage. We hope you learn to love the heroes and heroines who helped shape this great country. And by doing so, we hope you also develop a lasting love for the nation that gave them the opportunity to make their dreams come true. It will do the same for you.

Happy Reading!

I read every available book in the Childhood of Famous Americans Series when I was a young girl. I was so excited when I finished one and went to the library to get another book! This was about 25 years ago and I still remember those wonderful hours spent reading about the lives of our American heroes! I am so happy that I can now buy the whole series for my own children and plan to incorporate it into our homeschooling year (we may even start it yet this summer!) I highly recommend these books-your child will share the many adventures of our forefathers (and mothers!) and learn without even knowing it! Beth Lawson Brownsburg, IN.

"Childhood of Famous Americans series: These books were my favorite biographies as a child. They are very readable and interesting, and allow young readers to enjoy biographies of well-known people when they were children. Although these are not published by Christian publishers, the value of "doing what is right" is stressed throughout the books, with consequences when children do "wrong." Published originally in the pre- and post-World War II years, these books gained much popularity during the 1950's (when I was in elementary school!). When the "new" thinking in education began to take hold in the late 60's-70's (less emphasis on reading, studying, and morals), these books seemed to have been forgotten. They were discovered by homeschoolers (and others). More current men and women including Native Americans, African-Americans and other minorities, have been added to the list of available titles. These are highly recommended for readers from 3rd grade on up (even my older children and teens have enjoyed reading them!). Please contact me if you have questions. vgs@intercomm.com" VS - Nevada
