About the Authors:
Rea is a homeschooling mother of six whose determination to teach history using quality literature rather than
standard textbooks inspired her to research what was available to accomplish that purpose. The result has been a series of History Through Literature study guides all designed to acquaint the reader with the best children's literature available on the subject. Rea holds a Masters Degree in Children's Literature from The Center for the Study of Children's Literature, Simmons College in Boston.
Rebecca B. Manor, a homeschool graduate, majored in English Literature at Hillsdale College and studied British Literature at Oxford University. She wrote her first study guide, A History of Science, at age seventeen. She later co-authored Early American and World History with Rea. Her latest study guides are The History of Classical Music and Teaching Character Through Literature. Rebecca and her husband, Scott, currently reside in Paris, France where they are pursuing further education.
