18th Century

The period from 1700-1800 saw dramatic changes, mostly in the last 25 years. There are a few books about colonial life in the colonies, but most children's literature focuses on the dramatic events of the American Revolution and the Constitutional Convention. an exception is George Washington's World which surveys people and events around the world.

In 2010, we plan to publish Famous Men of the 18th Century, which will survey these hundred years by telling the stories of 25-30 key figures whose lives span the century.

There are a few books on the French Revolution and the key figures of Lafayette and Napoleon, as well as a few biographies of musicians and artists.

You will find the books below sorted into convenient categories. Don't forget to take a look at the Activity & Coloring Books!
