It's what you and I live every day.
When we read history we tend to forget that it was everyday life, lived by real people like you and I.
That's the history that tends to stick, for child or adult - that moment when you look at George Washington's shoe or Dolley Madison's gloves or a lock of hair from a baby born in 1798...and feel the reality.
It's real. It really happened.
And that's the moment we want our books to give you.
