August Link-Up: Old School Kidlit Reading Challenge (Nonfiction)

As summer winds down, please share any old school nonfiction you read in August.

I read and reviewed quite a few books:

  • A Book of Americans by Rosemary and Stephen Vincent Benet, illustrated by Charles Child (1933)
  • A Picturesque Tale of Progress: Beginnings I by Olive Beaupre Miller
  • Juvenile Story Writing (1922) and Writing for Young People (1950) by Mabel Robinson
  • And Then What Happened, Paul Revere? (1973), Why Don't You Get a Horse, Sam Adams? (1974), Where Was Patrick Henry on the 29th of May? (1975), What's the Big Idea, Ben Franklin? (1976), Will You Sign Here, John Hancock? (1976), Can't You Make Them Behave, King George? (1977), Where Do You Think You're Going, Christopher Columbus? (1980), and Shh! We're Writing the Constitution (1987), all by Jean Fritz (and all reviewed in one post here.)
I also read A Picturesque Tale of Progress: Beginnings II by Olive Beaupre Miller and Gates of Excellence: On Reading and Writing Books for Children by Katherine Paterson, but ran out of time to review them this month.
