Now, let's dive in!

Hi Aleksandra,

What a great idea! I don’t know much about the history of Tajikistan but would love to learn more. We will definitely add it to the list of future topics to cover in the future. Thanks so much for writing in and I hope you are enjoying our magazines.

Hi George,

I’m so happy to hear that you want to learn more about ninjas because we have a whole issue about Japan and some truly amazing samurai! You can find Issue 16 | The Way of the Samurai, on our website. Give it a read and let us know what you think!

Hi Evelyn,

It is amazing that you are a descendant of someone on the Mayflower (and someone who fell off it!). Someone in your family must be very good at keeping track of your family tree!

We would LOVE to do an issue on Egypt and promise we will cover it at some point. It has been on our list and we hope to get to it soon! Thanks for writing in and I hope you enjoy the next issue of Honest History.

Hi Oliver,

That is a clever idea! We currently don’t have a magazine about the history of movies, but we do have a book about the history of inventions where we cover the creation of the first television and the amazing inventor who made television possible. You can purchase History is Inventive on our website to learn more!

Thank you so much for reading Honest History and for your lovely note and drawing.


Hi Young Historians—do you have any 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!
