Unforgettable Stories of Personal Courage and Great Events in History.
We are a publishing company focused on non-fiction books for boys and girls ages ten to fifteen. We believe that books for young readers should be full of action and adventure, with real-life characters that are bold, active, and heroic. We are inspired by the philosphy of Living Books and the quality of the Landmark Books and have brought many of them back into print.
"If you Cough, Sneeze, Sigh, or Yawn, do it not loud but privately."
George Washington, as a teenager, copied the famous Rules of Civility. These rules were not invented by George, but he tried to live by them. The language used in the early 1700s seems old-fashioned to us now but most of the ideas are still important.
Can you re-write them for today?
E-mail us with the number of the rule and the way you would re-write it.
