Rhymes and storytelling have been shown to enhance child development and learning. Former elementary school librarian, Dixie Moss, uses these strategies in her new book “First Bites: Tidbits of American History for the Young and Young at Heart,” to engage young readers with historical facts, key players and events.
Having worked with children for many years, Moss has firsthand experience with the difficulties students have with text heavy pages and dense information. By combining her own love of history and genealogy with her educational background, Moss created her book to make the past more approachable in the present.
“I want students to learn about our history in a way that is memorable, and maybe it will encourage them to learn and be excited about the unique country we live in,” said Moss.
“First Bites” uses rhymes to teach readers about significant historical events ranging from the Mayflower to Paul Revere and beyond. Each story offers a taste of American History and provides young readers with an understanding of where they came from and an appreciation of the United States.
“We owe so much to our forefathers and families for their strength and courage,” said Moss. “I wrote this book because I want younger generations to understand our history and not to take it for granted.”
Moss hopes the historical events and people covered in her book will evoke patriotic emotions in readers of all ages.
