Timelines are essential for teaching history, especially for students who are visual learners. This book strikes an appealing balance with informative text, captioned illustrations, and the timeline that graces the bottom of every page. As a home school teacher, I can say I would certainly have used this book with my own children in the elementary grades had it been available.
Use this as one of your textbooks while studying the colonial period through the American Revolution. The colonies are grouped by the times they were first settled, from earliest colonies through the last of the thirteen, so it is easy to find a particular state of interest to supplement a state history unit as well--provided you are fortunate enough to live or teach in one of the original colonies!
