betsy maestro american story books - are these good?


Recommended Posts

I've gotten a few from the library and I like the looks of them, but are they reliable, information-wise?

I was thinking about just getting the whole set for my 6 and 9yo but I'm not sure if they're worth it.





I have the first two and we are enjoying them. I haven't gotten out my fact checker, but nothing seemed unreasonable or fairy-tale-ish.


I'll be getting more.

We have all 7 (or is it 6?) and the boys re-read them for fun all the time. I find them very balanced, with a real effort to present both side of an issue.


But - they only go up to the War of 1812. I was wondering if the Maestros were close to finishing another so emailed her. We have ended up corresponding and she even sent me the outline for the next book along with some resources! Such a nice lady. Unfortunately the next book, which will go up to the Civil War, isn't due out for 2 more years.
