History Book By Book (HBBB) is a database collection of engaging, entertaining and educational books about various historical topics. Whenever possible, we have cross-referenced topics, internally linked additional suggestions based on like subjects, and created useful categorized lists for you to search and browse. Hopefully you will be able to glean a vast amount of information and find as many history related books as you would ever want to find.
As a long time homeschooling parent, and the author of literature based homeschool curriculum, we designed HBBB to help:
(1) homeschooling parents looking for additional resources to read to their children,
(2) homeschooling parents looking for more historical based books to give their children to read themselves,
(3) any teen or adult looking for categorized historical reading material for their own enjoyment and knowledge.
Reading your way through history... one book at a time.
