Eat Your U.S. History Homework: Ann McCallum Books ~ a TOS review

I have a real treat for you today if you like hands on learning! A few weeks ago we were given a copy of Eat Your U.S. History Homework from Ann McCallum Books and we have been enjoying it.

Eat Your U.S. History Homework is penned by Ann McCallum, who has written several books. She is a teacher by trade and started her career teaching in a one-room schoolhouse in northern Canada. Now she enjoys teaching high school in Maryland.

This awesome 47 page hardback book is jammed packed with history information on everything from the earliest settlers to the American Revolution and more! It’s always fun to add a food component to anything you are learning about the past or present and this book does not disappoint. With recipes like:

Thanksgiving Succotash

Colonial Cherry-Berry Grunt

Lost Bread

Southern Plantation Hoe Cakes

Revolutionary Honey-Jumble Cookies

Independence Ice Cream

you are sure to find something just right to cook with your children.


It's not everyday you get to tell your kids to eat their history and learn about important historical facts at the same time. I did have to let go of my type -A tendencies and just let the girls do it, regardless of any messes and missteps. But that's exactly what I did with the girls and it was so much fun cooking with them.

The recipes are easy to follow and the illustrations are so cute and fit each page and recipe. The girls were able to follow the directions easily and sometimes with little to no help from me, except supervision.

We had fun making Independence Ice Cream. It was our first time making ice cream from scratch and the girls loved it! They have already thought of add ins they want to include on our next batch.

Overall we are so pleased with this book and have our eyes on the other books in this series, Eat Your Math Homework and Eat Your Science Homework, to add to our collection.
