  • I can`t tell you how delighted I was to find early readers about true American heroes. While learning to read, your children can also learn about wonderful role models! We are using the books in this series presently and loving them. The illustrations are realistic , also. My youngest daughter loved to sit and hear her brother read about these heros and has learned so much history at a very early age! 

    We recently made an amazing discovery! My daughter-in-law Kari was looking for history hero stories for Cassidy when she was 3 years old. I loaned her a set of these readers and Cass was captivated by them! So, you`ll definitely get your money`s worth as you read them to your preschoolers, teach your beginning readers to read with them and use them all the way up to third grade level. If your child wants to hear the story again and again (which mine all did), and then progresses to learning to read on their own, it can only help them to be familiar with the story. This is actually how my oldest son taught himself to read.

    This set includes:

    Nathan Hale, Patriot Spy- In the fall of 1776, Nathan Hale snuck into a British army camp as a spy for General George Washington. Many people believed spying was dishonorable. This is a true tale of how Nathan Hale chose to risk his honor-and his life-to help set America free

    Will and Orv-Johnny Moore watched as the amazing airplane moved along the track. He wondered if the Flyer would make it off the ground. Then suddenly it was up-soaring into the strong winds before plunging back to the ground. This historic 12-second ride will always be remembered as the first engine-powered flight. Young Johnny Moore was one of only five witnesses to Wilbur and Orville Wright`s magical first. This is the story of that first flight and of the young boy who helped the Wright`s make history.

    Keep the Lights Burning, Abbie-Abbie was afraid. She had never had to keep the lights burning by herself before, but many lives depended on this lighthouse and Papa was depending on Abbie. This is an exciting true story of Abbie Burgess, who single-handedly kept the lighthouse lamps lit during a tremendous storm off the coast of Maine in 1856.

    An American Army of Two-The war of 1812 is raging, the United States fighting Great Britain.

    Florence Nightingale-As a child of wealth and privilege, Florence Nightingale always longed to do more for those less fortunate. She found her chance to help others when fortunate. She found her chance to help others when England went to war. Lantern in hand, Florence swept quietly through rooms of wounded and sick men.

With more than 60 years of service, she helped to make nursing an honorable profession, left behind safer, cleaner hospitals, and saved countless lives!
