I have some on PBS and in my rural library that is posted on librarything.com. If you find any you want I will make a deal with you depending on what you find. The librarything site is 

not completed as I had to switch from gurulib when it went down an am still processing books.  

Here is the link www.librarything.com/catalog/helensbooknook

IF you find any on either site you like just pm me and I will see what I can do for you.

Kristy, I am not familiar with The Story of the World history curriculum, but I do have a bunch of kids history books.....some on my bookshelf and some not  posted. I have a collection of Dear America books and would be willing to include a few of them in a deal for you if that would help. Dear America books are fiction but they do teach a lot of history and are very interesting to read. I have over 200 childrens book on my shelf so you might want to see if I have anything you need. I will do 4/2, 6/3, 8/4, 11/5 if you find some you like.

I think I have some you'd like! Check out my shelf- I'll always do 5 or 6 for 2 credits, but I'd love to make a bigger deal if you see more you'd like!
