A deep dive into the history of a landmark American city—from colonial times until now

Spanning 400 years of history, from the Tea Party to the Boston Marathon attack, author Richard Panchyk chronicles the lives of Bostonians both famous and infamous, and many colorful characters. Included are 21 hands-on activities such as baking a Boston Cream Pie, writing a poem in the style of Ralph Waldo Emerson, and walking the Freedom Trail. The book also includes a time line and list of books, websites, and places to visit.


"A very special, historical experience for students, absorbing them with imaginative, hands on activities as they learn about the realities of boisterous Boston and its large slice of American history. You don't have to be a Red Sox fan to love this gripping and illustrative narrative of real life. Better than any tourist booklet, Boston History for Kids, by Richard Panchyk, will entice you to visit Bean Town and its memorable allures" - Ralph Nader
