  1. MEXICAN AMERICANS

    MEXICAN AMERICANS

    $6.95
    Mexican Americans have one of the richest and longest non-native histories in the United States. In this issue, we look at this group of Americans and their contributions, beginning with the first Mexican Americans -- who became citizens when international borders shifted, not them. We meet Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta, two people who devoted their lives to improving others' lives. There is an article on Mexican food, and you'll be amazed to see the English words that have Spanish roots. You can read about Mexican folk art and celebrations, and we've also included an activity to make your own cascaron. /cob0405t Learn More
  2. Women Want the Vote!

    Women Want the Vote!

    $6.95
    It was more than 70 years in the making. From 1848 until 1920, some women willingly faced all kinds of opposition for a cause in which they believed - the right to vote. They came from different backgrounds and their methods varied, but most of these women shared at least one thing in common: they refused to give up. They gave speeches, organized events, filled petitions, and spent time in jail. The March issue is devoted to a look at some of the women (and a few men!) who stand out and stood up for a cause that often made them the focus of angry personal attacks, ridicule, and scorn. From Lucretia Mott and Elizabeth Cady Stanton to Alice Paul and Lucy Burns, they dedicated their lives to making sure that all women had a voice. Learn More
  3. Journey to the North Pole

    Journey to the North Pole

    $6.95
    This month marks the 100th anniversary of Robert E. Peary's journey to the North Pole. In our April issue, we retrace both Peary's route to the Arctic in the spring of 1909. We meet some of the people who helped and supported him, from the first African American explorer to reach the pole, Matthew Henson, to Peary's wife, Josephine. Get to know the Inughuits, the natives of northern Greenland, whose knowledge of how to survive in the Arctic was a key to Peary's success. And see how and with what equipment Peary's teams packed their sledges - and discover what they were not allowed to bring. There's a fun activity to help you identify Arctic creatures and we've also included a Polar Bear Contest. You'll laugh out loud when you see the photos we found of polar bears in various stages of activity and inactivity. Finally, we've also included an article about the North Pole today and how scientists are still learning about this frozen frontier. Learn More

    Pilgrims Rock the New World

    $6.95
    In this issue, we take a fresh look at the Pilgrims and follow their movement from England to the Netherlands to the New World. We see how while their arrival in Massachusetts meant a chance for a better life for them, the English settlement they started also forever impacted the way of life for the natives already living in the area. Ever wonder how the Pilgrims packed for their journey? Or what the trip in the Mayflower was like? Or how our Thanksgiving Day compares to the 1621 feast the Pilgrims hosted? We've got those subjects and more covered in the October issue. Plus there's a crossword puzzle and a recipe for a classic stewed pumpkin dish. Doesn't that sound delicious? Learn More
  7. John Adams: Join or Die

    John Adams: Join or Die

    $6.95
    If he believed in something, few of our Founding Fathers could bring more passion to the cause than John Adams. During the difficult years when the 13 Colonies itched for more freedom and more respect but didn't quite believe it was going to require a break from Great Britain to gain, Adams became a strong voice for independence. Having convinced his fellow colonists to fight, he spent decades in public service to ensure that our young nation had every chance to succeed. This November issue not only focuses on the life author, lawyer, diplomat, Founding Father, vice president, president, husband, and father John Adams, but it also looks at the other many noteworthy Adams family members, from wife Abigail to great-grandsons.

  8. Gettysburg: Civil War Turning Point

    Gettysburg: Civil War Turning Point

    $6.95
    In 1863, the dis-United States were about halfway through the Civil War, (but they didn't know that). When the Union and Confederate armies clashed at a small farming community in southern Pennsylvania that July, it proved to be a turning point in the war. In the February issue, we head to Gettysburg and see what happened over the course of that three-day battle. From the strategy of the military leaders to the townspeople's care of the wounded to the role of news reporters covering the battles, it is all here. And we visit the new museum and visitor center at Gettysburg National Military Park, where the historic Battle of Gettysburg cyclorama has been restored and now hangs in a specially designed 360-degree hall.

  10. Surrender at Saratoga

    Surrender at Saratoga

    $6.95
    Two years into the Revolutionary War (1775-1783), one British general felt pretty confident that the"rebellion" by the American colonists could easily be put down. His plan-to invade New York State from the British base in Canada and cut off the troublesome New Englanders from their fellow colonists-resulted instead in a major win for the Americans. In addition to guiding readers through the movements of the British and American armies during the Saratoga Campaign and showing how the British defeat at these battles impacted the rest of the war, this issue also introduces some of the key players: John Burgoyne and Barry St. Leger on the British side and Horatio Gates, Daniel Morgan, and Benedict Arnold on the American side. There's an article that describes what life was like for camp followers as well as a behind-the-scenes look at how soldiers survived day-to-day life in the army in the 1700s. And you can read about the Saratoga National Historical Park, where members of the National Park Service work to preserve the story of this pivotal, turning point event in American history.
