Heroes of History Reviews

This article is in collaboration with YWAM Publishing.

Bringing history to life with tales of real-life heroes can make a difference in children’s lives as they learn about positive role models. YWAM Publishing, the publishing side of Youth With a Mission, does just that with their Christian Heroes: Then & Now and Heroes of History series. Members of the Homeschool Review Crew recently received selected titles from these series. In the pages of these books, history, geography, government, and science are presented in a unique way, and the tales of these inspirational men and women leave a lasting impression on children as they grow.
