History Books for Young Readers, by Jacob and John Abbott

These history books are written as textbooks for classroom instruction or individual study, for levels ranging from fourth grade through high school. Four historical categories areas are covered, as shown below. Captions within pages can be used as topics, or reformed as questions, and be used for review of the content presented on the pages. These texts are interspersed with engravings (graphics) and each is divided into historical or logical chapters, which facilitates the assignment of lessons. The files are in both pdf and epub formats. Also, a larger 13-point font pdf file is provided for younger readers. Jacob and John Abbott were brothers who excelled in writing these engaging and easy-to-read histories and stories.
