Overview

For students ages eight to fourteen, the MY AMERICAN JOURNEY
series presents a true history of the United States with a cleverly helpful
dose of fiction.

Each of the ten books recounts highlights from the life of a political,
creative, or cultural legend. But to engage a student’s interest from
page one, a fictional narrator—usually a school-age person who somehow
knew the main hero—tells the story with youthful vigor.

Adding to Deborah Hedstrom-Page’s unique lessons are illustrations
from Sergio Martinez (Max Lucado’s You Are Special). Each book also
contains study questions and activity pages for every chapter.

Thomas Edison (1847–1931) was a bright American inventor and
businessman best-known for his patent of the light bulb. His story as
retold here teaches readers about the core value of hope—expecting
good things to happen.
