America's Children

Experience early America through the resilient hearts of its children with James Otis’ beloved series. Each book, adorned with the original illustrations, follows young protagonists like “Richard of Jamestown” and “Mary of Plymouth,” offering a child’s-eye view of life in the fledgling days of the nation.

From the sturdy resolve of “Hannah of Kentucky” to the adventurous spirit of “Philip of Texas,” these tales blend fact with fiction, providing a palpable sense of place and time.

James Otis’ series, cherished for generations, comes alive once more, inviting young readers to witness the forging of American history through the stories of its children.
