American Founding Fathers

This is a book on the Founding Father of the United States of America. It will briefly talk about each one of them. The target audience of this book are ages 7 to 12. Most of the pages haven't been started so go onto the main site here:

  http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Wikijunior:American_Founding_Fathers  and click on a blue link to get started.

It would really be a big help for this very large book if any help would come around. Don't think this means that you actually have to finish a section you start, you just need to provide any information that you know about that person and to remember that this writing is intended for children and it is a nonfiction book.

WikiJunior Alphabet

If you are looking for a beginning project to work on why not try to work on the Alphabet. The book is to be used for beginning readers so there are lots of pictures. You can see what needs to be done on this page http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Wikijunior:Alphabet  and feel free to add anything you think the book will benefit from


About the Project

The aim of this project is to produce age-appropriate non-fiction books for children from birth to age 12. These books are richly illustrated with photographs, diagrams, sketches, and original drawings. Wikijunior books are produced by a worldwide community of writers, teachers, students and young people all working together. The books present factual information that is verifiable. You are invited to join in and write, edit and rewrite each module and book to improve its content. Our books are distributed free of charge under the terms of the Gnu Free Documentation License.

Anybody Can add content

If you feel that you have enough information about a topic please add it. It does not matter what age you are, you don't need to be a teacher, you don't need to be an adult. Anybody can add what they want as long as it is related to the  book or page you are adding it to.

Current Books

The Diagrams

On the Side of the Books are diagrams. They tell you how far along the book is with it's development. One Square = Little Text (Needs Major Work), Two Squares = About Half Way finished, Three Squares = The book is almost finished. Four Squares = Completed or Very Close to Finished

This Community

This community is here so that you can ask questions about what you want to do or need done, to discuss your ideas or plans, or to request help on one of the projects. I hope that you enjoy working on these projects.
