I have volunteered with this organization and can vouch for the work that they do for the children and families in our community. The publications and learning activities in the books should be used by the schools to enhance the growth of youth in our neighborhoods.

When I discovered Home Based Arts I was completely blown away by the quality and readability of their work. It is simply amazing that they are able to bring stories of great individuals to their audience.

What a blessing to get enough Learning Activity Books to give to a whole classroom of children. Some of these kids never get a book of their very own-- to get to keep one of these books on high quality paper helps them respect and take good care of their book when we use it in class, and means so much more when they can actually take it home. The teacher curriculum guides make it so much easier to work in class activities and makes it even more fun for me. Thank you for having more than one title too.

As a volunteer assisting with many types of projects to support their work throughout the year I am fortunate enough to be familiar with the dedication it takes to move a Learning Activity book from concept into the hands of thousands and thousands of grade school kids.
I watch as they multitask seeking funding, writing grant requests, coordinating the writers, artists, historian and editors and printers to actually create the book, and curriculum directors and teachers who write the Teacher Curriculum guide and make sure the writers keep the copy appropriate for grade school reading levels. All that along with what it takes to run a non profit on the inside.
All the work seems worth it when I see a kid who gets one of the books for the first time open it and get excited! I listened in on a focus group of kids talking about 3 of the titles and saw how much the books really mean to the kids, how the read the real messages about people who are inspiring, achieve success often in the face of hardship, and make a difference n our world.
Seeing those kids appreciate the book makes all my volunteer hours totally worth the time and effort.
Keep on doing what you're doing! So many kids, and their teachers and parents, need what you offer.

I am always amazed at how this organization publishes new Learning Activity Books each year-- and always with a topic so relevant to grade school kids! Locally the Water Water Everywhere book (100th anniversary of the "Great Flood" brought poignant images and the story in language suitable for grade schoolers. As always they tied it into themes of success-- of sticking to it-- this time with pride in your community.

And they keep sending tens of thousands of these to schools with companion teacher's curriculum guides year after year. I always look forward to the new titles!

Teachers, parents and, most importantly, children have shared feedback for years that they love these books. Readers are particularly fond of the subject matter, which covers historic figures, events and topics in a fun way that are not addressed with such detail in schools. The organization keeps publishing books that are as entertaining as they are educational.

Children's Historical Publishing actually does what so many non-profits want to do...make a meaningful impact in people's lives. They make a tremendously positive impact upon the lives of children with their learning-activity books. Most importantly, they've placed more than 370,000 books into kids' hands through schools, parents, family members and friends, which speaks to how effective they are as an organization. CHPS truly is a great non-profit!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them get more funding and volunteers.

What HBA does for children is both practical and profound, specifically with their Children's Historical Publishing division. They put books in the hands of children. And what those books do for children is educate their minds and increase their capacity to learn. Kids become smarter, more confident and compassionate because they feel a sense of self-worth. HBA also places teaching guides for the books in the hands of school teachers. They provide activities and full lesson plans that often cover many underserved topics. In this way, HBA is supporting our whole educational system by taking care of kids at school and home.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing kids fully immersed in the books with smiles on their faces.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

provide them with more volunteers and donate more money to the organization.

As I observed students reading about the Tuskegee Airman, it was amazing to me how much respect they had for what went before them. I believe Children's Historical Publishing presents material on topics that no one would ever think that students should be exposed to. Students truly enjoy being introduced to these values in a way that make sense.I hope more classrooms are able to take advantage of this material.
