History Books Kids Can't Wait to Crack Open
New book series puts historical events in comic form, luring kids into our country's past in a painless way.
In his new historically based comic book series Ruchir Shah has taken big events and boiled them down into colorful, kid-friendly educational tools
The books feature The Civil War, Martin Luther King, Jr., Benjamin Franklin and are written in a style respectful of the subject matter, but nonetheless attractive to the 8-14 year-old set.
Designed to make history fun the series encourages children to seek out their cultural entitlement, increasing their awareness of history and what can be learned from it.
Using bright illustrations that soften the often shocking concepts that war and assassination present, Shah also uses simple - but thought provoking - vocabulary to enhance understanding of the times.
Written for use in the classroom or family room the EZ Comics series is not only a teaching tool for history, it's a teaching tool for life.
