The musical Hamilton has brought a lot of attention to Alexander Hamilton over the past few years. But there’s more to Alexander Hamilton than a musical. Time publishes amazing books for children about the history of our great country. They are written in a way that intrigues children, teaches them and keeps them engaged.
In Times Heroes of History Alexander Hamilton, your child will learn all about Hamilton life. How he grew up poor on the Caribbean island of Nevis and despite having everything going against him he became a great thinker and writer. How he moved to New York and became an important part of the American Revolution and an architect of the new nation’s system of government.
The book is filled with pictures of oil paintings from Hamilton’s time as well as replicas of handwritten documents. It really helps to engage the child in the book and keep them turning those pages and learning more. But what I really like is the timeline that is in the back of the book laying out how everything happened. It really helps put the timeline in perspective.
Heroes of History is perfect for any young mind that wants to get more information on how the United States government came to be and what obstacles and setbacks were overcome. Alexander Hamilton is just one of the books in the Heroes of History series. It was the first in this series. The second is Heroes of History: George Washington. Hopefully, there are more to come. I really enjoyed these books and thought they were a great way to teach my child a little bit about American History.
