The Children's Encyclopedia of American History by DK Publishing contains over 300 pages and focuses on the entire history of the United States from 1000 A.D. to today. It is also organized in chronological order.
What we like about this encyclopedia is that it is easy to read and contains thousands of beautiful pictures many maps, charts and posters, information about Us presidents, key American figures, facts on the 50 states, the Constitution and Declaration on Independence.
This encyclopedia can be a great resource for children who have to write history essays and who want to learn more about US history all while enjoying looking at images and charts. It can also be a great resource for teachers in the classroom. Worth noting is the fact that the encyclopedia has been created in collaboration with the Smithsonian Institution.
