Letter from Quinn


Hi Quinn,

Thanks so much for the card! I also love getting letters and packages in the mail, so this was a bit of a treat for me too! I love your story suggestions and will run it by the team here at Honest History. We are always looking for new story ideas and appreciate the suggestions.

Hi Vivie,

It sounds like you have a real interest in natural disasters throughout history (and you aren’t alone)! I used to love learning about the plague and didn’t learn about the Chicago fire until I was a lot older. We touch briefly on the plague in Issue 9 | An Era of Exploration, but we would love to have an entire issue dedicated to plagues and natural disasters throughout history.

Thanks for writing in, and I hope you continue learning about interesting events in history.

Hi Elijah,

The history of Lego is fascinating and something I think all kids should learn about! Our podcast, Unlock This!, has a story all about the history of Lego and how the company came to be. It’s a really interesting story and one I think might surprise you (there are a lot of fires in the story). Thanks for writing in!


Postcard from Max


Hi Max,

Thank you for sharing that bit of history with us! Issue 21 | Across the Steppes is all about the history of Mongolia, and our feature story is about the life of Genghis Khan! Thank you for writing in, and I hope you continue sharing a bit of history with family and friends.


Young Historians! Do you have questions about our kids magazine? Is there a topic you want us to cover? Please send us a note (or drawing). It might appear on our next installment of We've Got Mail. And, as always, happy reading!
