American History Sale!

(Not just US History, but Canada too!)

 

Here in the good ol' U.S. of A., we are coming up on the 4th of July, Independence Day, and that is always good reason for a sale, especially on American History materials. We even have a brand new title available! But we decided to expand that subject just a little to include resources on all North American history materials, which includes Canada and Mexico... only we don't have any resources on Mexican history yet (oops!), so we'll focus in on U.S. and Canada. Take advantage of these great prices on some fun resources that your kids can browse even while on summer break. Save up to 45%! Sale continues through June 24th.

 

As always, if you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Just send them to helpdesk@kqpublishing.org.
