Why this product was made
I'm a librarian who loves using picture books to explore historical topics. Picture books are a great way to introduce history lessons and offer an accessible path to explore primary sources for learners of all ages. I make these guides so that students can closely study picture books independently or a teacher can lead his/her class in exploring them together.
