Historical Storybooks

When you combine historical events with creative storytelling, you can come up with some very powerful stories! The real trick is to find a creative way to tell the stories so the result does not sound like a history textbook or a research paper but an exciting legend instead.

And here is a great cartoon from Mark Parisi about the importance of history:
