What are you reading this Sunday that's made you feel good?
This is a gorgeous book about railroads and the men, mostly African-American, who built and maintained them.
Even better, there's a section about how to be a historian.
And best, it makes being a historian sound like lots of fun. (Cause it is!!)
Since history is my field, and I'm keenly feeling how fewer people seem to understand and respect it these days, this book really boosted my spirits.
Plus, did I mention it's a wonderful story?
It's a 63 page illustrated chapter book. Kids in 4th grade and up can read it pretty easily I think. Published by our friends at National Geographic!
