Elementary students learn history not through predigested textbooks with multiple-choice answers, but through reading the stories of history. Unfortunately, biographies of great men and women of the past are almost all written for older students, limiting the ability of young students to explore history through reading. Libraries are crammed with biographies written for high school students and adults—while beginning readers are provided with a shelf full of junior-level books about football players, NASCAR drivers, and movie stars. Now, Peace Hill Press puts real history back into the grasp of the youngest historians with the Who in the World Biography Series. The entries in the series provide young readers and their parents and teachers with biographies of great men and women of the Middle Ages. Designed to be used as part of The Story of the World curriculum, these biographies give beginning historians in grades 2–4 a chance to explore beyond the textbook. The accompanying book is also available separately.

    Ethelred the Unready was just 10-years-old when he was crowned king of England. Over the course of his reign, he dealt with bad advisors, boasting cowards, and Vikings. Who in the World Was The Unready King? tells his story to children. It’s written in a very engaging way and includes an author’s note about what was made up (dreams and thoughts) and what wasn’t (pretty much everything else) and where our information about Ethelred comes from.
