  • Connecting the Coasts: The Race to Build the Transcontinental Railroad by Norma Lewis

  • David Macaulay’s books (I just couldn’t choose a favorite. All of Macaulay’s books are amazingly detailed and fascinating for kids—and their parents too!)

  • You Wouldn’t Want to…series by various authors.
    (This series of books is published by Franklin Watts—a division of Scholastic. These are technically picture books but are targeted at an older audience. The books cover many historical events and professions, all focused on educating about their topic while highlighting the dangerous and gross. They are fascinating reading for anyone, but boys especially love them!)
