Only U.S. Presidents books are listed here. Mike Venezia also has a series for Artists and Composers that we have enjoyed. Those are listed under the Picture Study and Composer Study book suggestions on the site.
Below the books are broken out by time period so you can enjoy them with your history studies as well. These books are great to assign as independent reading once a student can read fluently.
