History as Family Reading Time

We are reading from “The Story of The World” for History-Family Reading. Thursday’s chapter was on Hammurabi and the Babylonians. I read a list of laws from the Code of Hammurabi to Kelsey and asked her if she thought they were fair. She thought many of them were fair, even the “an eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.”

Too often we give children answers to remember rather than problems to solve. -Roger Lewin
