From our mailbag:
Why aren’t there any books about the Khans (as in the Mongols) for kids? Why doesn’t somebody blog about that? […] there’s plenty of other books for kids about scary historical figures that killed a bunch of people (I have almost 5 on the first “emperor” of China.)
And this is why I will never homeschool. I think strange thoughts already; I don’t need to add “analyzing lack of bloodthirst in children’s literature” to the list.
Cartoon History of the Universe does the trick nicely for this, actually!
