Take Your Family on a Historical (Audiobook) Tour of the United States!

Have you ever heard of international diplomacy through dolls? Do you know when and where the only successful coup d’état in the United States took place? Or who the first professional woman detective in the United States was and how she helped stop an assassination attempt on Abraham Lincoln before he became president? How can you make it fun to learn about the New Deal? (Is that even possible? Yes!!) Get your ears ready for a yearlong historical tour of the United States and learn about these true events in American history by listening to historical fiction!

Right now I’m on a mission to find audiobooks that bring American history to life for listeners of all ages. I’m looking for at least one book from each state, each short enough to be easily finished in one week. Then buckle up and get ready to “travel” to all 50 states as well as Washington, DC and Puerto Rico in a year!

I’d love to know if you’ve listened to an exceptional book of historical fiction that the whole family can enjoy. If so, please let me know in the comments!
