    Perfect ending to teaching American History!

    We really enjoyed using this product while learning about American History. Probably the only negative I can think of is that there are usually only one or two recipes per period so we usually had to do a little more research to find a couple more recipes to make the entire meal we prefer to do when finishing up a unit. If you only want one or two recipes, then this is an absolutely perfect cook book to include in your American History lessons. Other than including just one or two recipes, we really enjoyed making and eating just about all the recipes from this book. Even if you do want more recipes, I encourage you to use this book. Not only does each recipe work to teach what people were eating during each period, there are additional points to ponder or a question to go along with each recipe which was really nice. We would discuss whatever point or question while cooking our meal, which would be a perfect lead in to a discussion about whatever topic with my son while we were cooking. Their World History Cookbook is just as fantastic, but with the usual one or two recipes, but well worth the cost to help start our recipe gathering for each period we studied in Ancient History and we're looking forward to using many of the other recipes included while we continue learning about world history.

    My child loved it!
    Yes, I would recommend this product.
