A Few Fun Reviews for Solomon:
"Leave it to a 12 year old to create my kids’ favorite history book this year! A launching pad for the important stuff. Short and sweet. Easy to use and leaves my kids wanting more history! A homeschool dad's godsend for a topic kids typically find boring. Well done, Solomon!"
Television and Film Actor, Producer, Homeschooling Father of Six
“I love this little book! Simple yet fun, easy yet informative, better than ‘A Dummies Guide’ and full of important facts presented in an easy-to-remember way. Solomon has mixed a bit of common sense with a bit of design genius to catch and keep my attention. Now, If only all high school students could learn these basic facts of U.S. History!”
Director-Institute for Excellence in Writing (IEW)
“I am frequently asked how to teach history to young children. I suggest that parents tell stories and give them history in short bites. Solomon Schmidt has done just that with his first book, U.S. History Bites. It is lavishly illustrated with appropriate images and a text that in a few trenchant sentences gets to the essence of the topic and then finishes with a vocabulary and review page, a perfect little book for the youngest person to whom you want to start teaching history.”
“Noah Webster said ‘every child in America should be acquainted with his own country. . . As soon as he opens his lips he should rehearse the history of his own country—he should lisp the praises of liberty and those illustrious heroes and statesmen who have wrought a revolution in his favor.’ I recommend Solomon’s bit of wisdom to get you started.”
