Here you can find a selection of important people’s stories exactly as I told them to my 2nd graders in attempt to teach them humanity and justice. I believe that such stories should be often told to young children in order to make them understand that life could be difficult at times but difficulties can be overcome with courage.
Sometimes it is hard to talk about important historical events to very young children. That is the reason why I am trying to adapt them to kids’ limited attention span. These stories could be used for class discussions. Children love hearing about real people’s lives. Just make the story sound important to you and your child will immediately become an enthusiast about it.
