About The Book

Light up the sky with this fact-tastic nonfiction Level 3 Ready-to-Read, part of a series about the history of fun stuff!

A special section at the back of the book includes Common Core–vetted extras on subjects like social studies and math, and there’s even a fun quiz so readers can test themselves to see what they’ve learned! Learning history has never been so much fun!
