A Book In Time lists books for kids & teens that will enhance the understanding of important eras, people, and events in a typical study of history, and can do so in an engaging and entertaining way.
Content that is realistic to the time period and that promotes positive life principles are also determining factors. Book choices are made at the discretion of A Book In Time.
If you are an author of a history book for kids, either fiction or nonfiction, and would like to have your own children's history book reviewed, please mail a copy to A Book In Time at P.O. Box 324, Earlysville, VA 22936. You can also email us any digital/PDF editions. All items sent in will be read!
Please be aware that books received by A Book In Time will be considered gifts and will not be returned. Titles that meet our purposes and objectives will be added to the website, and we may feature some of these titles in our newsletter. However, we reserve the right to not include any book on this website at our own discretion and without giving a reason.
The book review below the title gives a brief synopsis of its content, and can include comments on what is good and what is not-so-good about the book, noting possible objectionable elements. Keep in mind that all the history book reviews are strictly the personal opinions of the reviewer. Titles listed without comments have been recommended by respected sources, but have not yet been reviewed here.
For read-alouds, choose from the next grade level, i.e. E students can enjoy most UE books if read aloud to them. Be sure to note any cautions, particularly in JH and HS books, since some content is not suitable for younger children.
Because of the incredible value in many of the lower age-group books, we recommend that many of them not be limited to the younger child. These easy-to-read books allow the older student to gain a greater perspective of a particular historical theme in a short period of time, with minimal effort and a lot of fun!
