The Smart Aleck's Guide to American History

Author: Adam Selzer
Reviewer: Book Girl
This was hilarious!  It is set up like a history textbook, but unlike a history textbook, it is full of jokes, funny captions and rhymes to help you remember history such as:

Roses are red, violets are blue
Benjamin Franklin
Invented the stove

This book actually engaged me and made me want to read more, unlike some other books about history that I have read in my free time that I have abandoned after the first chapter.  Read it!
