REVIEW

 

"[California History for Kids] covers all of the state's history and places it within the larger context of American history, making it a good classroom or library resource." 

—School Library Journal

ABOUT

The story of California is the story of dreamers—explorers, gold miners, immigrants, ranchers, moviemakers, and more. Even before the state of California existed as such, people the world over trekked to the area hoping for new opportunities and exciting discoveries. They looked at California as a place of richness and prosperity—a place where dreams could come true. 

 

Explore California’s rich history, engage in twenty-one fun activities, such as creating a Chumash rock painting, building a Spanish galleon, decoding a railroad cipher, and more, and discover on-site and online resources to learn even more about the Golden State.
