The Story of Mankind, Foreword

Time for a new book! This is The Story of Mankind, by Hendrik van Loon, an excellent history book for kids, published in 1922, winner of the very first Newbery Award. My friend Shell and I read this one as a duet, each taking every other chapter. So don’t be alarmed when you hear a voice that’s not mine! :) I love the way Shell reads and I hope you do too.

Oh, by the way, you can buy a lovely thick reprint of the original book, with dozens of lively illustrations, from http://mainlesson.com.

Impatient? Get the entire book here: http://librivox.org/the-story-of-mankind-by-hendrik-van-loon/

(This book is very long so I’ll be posting three chapters a week.)
