For Kids

The For Kids series, established in 1994 with Frank Lloyd Wright for Kids: His Life and Ideas, introduces children to people, events, and ideas that have changed the world, but have often been avoided or oversimplified in other books for younger readers. Books in the series include Frederick Douglass for Kids, Albert Einstein and Relativity for Kids, Monet and the Impressionists for Kids, as well as books on civil rights, the American civil war, and both world wars.

The books in the For Kids series are written in a straightforward and accessible manner that does not skip over ambiguous and sometimes controversial subjects. They feature hands-on activities that don't just keep kids busy but extend the learning. Educators, homeschoolers, and parents alike have appreciated the comprehensive quality of this award-winning series and the way it mixes lively biography and engaging history with 21 interdisciplinary activities featuring writing, art, math, and science. Beautifully designed and illustrated with photographs and line drawings throughout, each book in the series includes interesting sidebars on the people and ideas that influenced the subject and their contemporaries in the field. Each book also includes a timeline, glossary, index, and resource section listing websites, books, and museums for further exploration.
