History Bites is an educational book series for children. U.S. History Bites is the first book in the series written by
12-year-old author Solomon Schmidt. Solomon has a passion for history and believes every child can and should learn history at a young age. He has created a beautiful 140 page full color masterpiece that will not only draw kids in and maintain their attention, but most importantly, help them learn significant events from history in a fun and engaging way. (And parents, don't be surprised...you'll be learning right along with your kiddoes.) The best part is, Solomon has only just begun! He has already started writing the second book in the series and plans to release it this fall!

From the Author:
"U.S. History Bites includes thirty topics from American history that I think all children should know. To enhance comprehension, it includes vocabulary and review questions for each section along with a glossary at the back of the book. It serves as a great read-aloud, but can also be enjoyed by independent readers in the earlier grades. Some high school students and adults have even used it as a supplement to their history curriculum. Each section is short enough to read as a bedtime story to help introduce children to foundational United States history. I really hope you like it."

“Leave it to a 12-year-old to create my kids’ favorite history book this year! A launching pad for the important stuff. Short and sweet. Easy to use and leaves my kids wanting more history! A homeschool dad’s godsend for a topic kids typically find boring. Well done, Solomon!”

“I love this little book! Simple yet fun, easy yet informative, better than ‘A Dummies Guide’ and full of important facts presented in an easy-to-remember way. Solomon has mixed a bit of common sense with a bit of design genius to catch and keep my attention. Now, if only all high school students could learn these basic facts of U.S. History!”

“I am frequently asked how to teach history to young children. I suggest that parents tell
stories and give them history in short bites. Solomon Schmidt has done just that with his first book, U.S. History Bites. It is lavishly illustrated with appropriate images and a text that in a few trenchant sentences gets to the essence of the topic and then finishes with a vocabulary and review page, a perfect little book for the youngest person to whom you want to start teaching history.”

“Noah Webster said ‘every child in America should be acquainted with his own country...As soon as he opens his lips he should rehearse the history of his own country—he should lisp the praises of liberty and those illustrious heroes and statesmen who have wrought a revolution in his favor.’ I recommend Solomon’s bit of wisdom to get you started.”
