History Kids Care About

How do you go to the bathroom in a suit of armor? Were there dogs on the Mayflower? What's a fast-acting poison that can't be traced? What insect has caused the most misery in human history? When was underwear invented? A lively, interactive discussion about the history that kids really want to know about.

$300


After Sarah briefly introduces some of her books and explains how and why she chose her topics, she'll invite kids (and adults) to ask all the questions they want to ask, and even questions they didn't KNOW they wanted to ask, about how ordinary people in history lived their lives. A lively discussion is guaranteed to ensue.
