About the Authors:
Rea Berg homeschooled her six children and it was her determination to teach history using quality literature rather than standard textbooks that inspired her to research what was available to accomplish that purpose. The result has been a series of History Through Literature Teacher guides all designed to acquaint the reader with the best children's literature available on the subject. Rea holds a Masters Degree in Children's Literature from The Center for the Study of Children's Literature, Simmons College in Boston.
Rebecca Manor, a homeschool graduate, loves story and art and remains in awe of their power to inspire a love of the good, the true, and the beautiful. She brings her studies of literature and theology, the many places she's called home, and a heart for homeschooling parents to the many teacher guides she has written for Beautiful Feet Books and strives to make teaching history, music, science, character, and literature accessible and joy-filled. Rebecca lives with her husband and their two sons in Fort Lauderdale where she is an adjunct professor at Knox Theological Seminary in their Christian and Classical Studies program, of which she is an alumna.
