I know, two posts in a day is taboo...but they're both short ones!
I'm linking up with Collaboration Cuties' Mentor Text Memo Linky. This week they're looking at historical fiction texts.
When I was a kid the biggest fad in books were these fun and weird "Choose your own adventure" books. I think I must have read 30 or 40 of them. I still have some in my classroom now! I loved reading through and seeing all the different endings.
Well, some smart people have taken this idea and applied it to historical fiction!
I read this one on Colonial America to my kids earlier this year and they loved it. I have several books from the series. Each book comes with 3 or 4 different stories from that era. They have these books for everything from Ancient Egypt to the Titanic.
Usually the kids beg me to "go back in time" and read the story over again from the last choice...just like I did as a kid.
The stories in the books are interesting, accessible, and historically accurate. I'll definitely be looking to add more of these to my library in the future.
Check out some of the other books in the linky! I see some of my other favorites there already!
