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.

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!

I have worked in the non profit world for decades, and was executive director of a major community center. We relied heavily on volunteers and collaboration with other non profits.
The education materials by Children's Historical Publishing for primary grade school children were a wonderful addition to our day care and after school care centers.
Their generous contributions were gratefully received.

I've had the opportunity to work with HBA and I think the books are very informative and serve as a positive in teaching history to our children. HBA books could serve as a supplement in our educational system.

Home Based Arts is a company with a vision to preserve the history of Ohio through coloring books ! The books are an educational tool that tell stories the texts books won't. They are also educating adults! I love the concept and will continue to support the works of the authors, illustrators, and leaders behind HBA.

I have worked with Home Based Arts for at least five years, and have done so because they fill such an important and unique niche in the education of our children, particularly our under-served children. I think the educational products of Home Based Arts does make a change in the lives of these students, and our community is better for it.
