Today educators are working to promote the study of history in the schools and at home. Knowledge of our history enables us to understand our nation’s traditions, its conflicts, and its central ideas and values. Knowledge of world history enables us to understand other cultures and learn from the experiences of the past. We hope to encourage children to love history and to enjoy learning about it. This book is a tool you can use to stimulate your children’s active involvement in the history that surrounds them every day.
