Book List for Ancient World History (Part 2)

great books for us history

to study
US History this year?  

Looking for some great books to make all the people, places, and events come ALIVE ?!?
Here are some of my favorite books for early US History all in one place.    

The lists are compatible with the American Girl History Units, but there are also LOTS of other great history books NOT related to the American Girls …never fear fellows !  
Check back from time to time, I’m always adding to the lists.

As always, it would be AWESOME  if you’re going to purchase any of the books (or anything on Amazon at all) , if you could do it through these links.   T
here is NO extra charge to you whatsoever, and I get a small percentage for any items you purchase which helps me to keep posting all my units for free.  

Also, be sure to follow my American Girl Pages on Pinterest for all kinds of additional printables, recipes, activities, crafts, etc…
(There’s lots of non-AG ideas too !!) 

**I usually pin new fun finds to these boards at least several times a week!
