Twenty Texans: Historic Lives for Young Readers by Betsy Warren was another book we greatly enjoyed about the Lone Star state!

It was recommended to me by a “born and raised” Texas mama, and it appealed to our whole crew as we learned about 20 mostly famous and a few lesser known Texans through the pen of an author who was clearly passionate about her topic!

We learned about the men behind city names that have become familiar to us, famous cowboys, authors, scientists, artists, Native Americans, Presidents, and more.

Texas history is filled with colorful characters and wild adventures, and this book brought them all a little closer to home.

Twenty Texans is a highly recommended addition to the “Texas History” section of your home library, especially for children 12 and under. The chapters are short (2-3 pages) and engaging – perfect for a Morning Basket!
