One of our favorite ways to "learn" history is through historical fiction. Our public library system, which is huge, has many titles to choose from all areas of history, with one exception: church history. Louise A. Vernon has written 13 titles for ages 8-12. Many you can get on Amazon or through Christian Book Distributors. Also, you can purchase a set of 12 from a little known company Library and Educational Services for $63.63.
I have listed all thirteen that I know of here -- but they are not in chronological order.
