A Child’s History of England

A Child’s History of England by Charles Dickens

Our friend Laurie Bluedorn of Trivium Pursuit recently compiled a great annotated list of her all-time favorite homeschool purchases and resources from the past 40 years. It’s a fascinating read, and has lots of resources in there that you probably never even heard of if you are a new homeschooler… but really ought to know about. You can CLICK HERE to read her article and educate yourself.

One of the resources Laurie suggested in that article is The Child’s History of England by Charles Dickens, which happens to be one of the most readable, interesting and exciting history books ever. So we thought we’d share it with you today. Try reading it aloud to your kids and you’ll see why it is such a classic.

You can read it online or download in  kindle or epub format from Project Gutenberg’s website here.
