Baseball, Butter, Buses and Buzz

The books covering 1925-1975 have come and gone without sparking any deep inquiries by 7-year-old S or 2-year-old F, and that’s fine. I’m getting more and more comfortable with the idea that I’m doing my job simply by making these books available to them, so I’m going to keep right on doing what I do.

Here’s this month’s haul for U.S. history from 1950-2000:

  4. Complete? Nah — not with so many great books that are still being published, or that we haven’t gotten to yet, not to mention all the facets of history we haven’t touched yet.

    But we have covered each period from prehistory to the present at least once. By all means, please feel free to link away — I’d really, really appreciate it.
