No, not every one! We have state history programs for 32 states currently. We’d love to get all 50 eventually!
We consider a number of factors when deciding to publish a state history program. If the state board of education is revising its set of social studies standards that touch on state history (typically grades 3–8), we’re interested. Our unique customized approach means that we take our time to produce quality programs, so we also balance our ability to put out our best work with the state’s demand for a program, timeline, and market size.
Although we mainly publish state history programs, we also publish ancient world history programs for middle school in North Carolina and Florida. As always, though, our history programs are tailored for a specific state’s standards on the topic. But yes, the majority of our programs are in the history of particular states.
We believe not only in the power of local history to illuminate untold stories and elicit pride in belonging to one’s home state, but in the quality of a history program that comes out of the disciplined focus of a particular historical lens. In addition, focusing only on state history programs allows us to remain successful as a small independent book publisher.
