"I never thought I'd teach a maritime history unit, but I'm so glad I did. This was my children's favorite class and each workshop kept them engaged and excited to learn more. There's a balance between depth of information and fun activities. A fabulous book and one I'll keep for reference." Jessi H., homeschool teacher
