Amazing Customer Service!

My family recently ordered an item and unfortunately, it never made it to us. Honest History managed to locate all our information and order history within minutes of learning of our missing item and are preparing to send out a replacement item on Monday! Amazing! I'm so excited to get our new material and support such a well run organization.

I enjoyed this book and think it will help kids get interested in a subject they may previously thought too complicated or "boring". Purchasing for my library!

History is Rich is a great resource in helping children understand capitalism and the economy. It focuses on American history and the role money played at each stage. I would say this would be best for a middle school child. Great bright illustrations and easy to read text.

This is a wonderful book for young people to dive into to understand why history is important, not only for the past, but for present day as well. This is going to be a very popular book and will end up being on so many shelves.

Such an informative and fun book!

This book was great it was informative and age appropriate without censoring or leaving out important details and historical context, instead the book appropriately addresses the areas for age of the reader. Well done!
