Secrets of American History is an action-packed nonfiction Level 3 Ready-to-Read series that lets beginning readers in on a little secret: history is full of surprises!

Before Julia Child was a famous chef, did you know she was cooking up shark repellant during World War II? It's true...and that's not the only exciting and interesting story from the war. Americans had to use clever and creative tactics to win their battles--tactics that included inflatable army tanks, costumes, and fake radio transmissions. Find out how and why it happened--and meet the woman who became the Allies' most dangerous spy!

An extend-the-learning section at the back of the book covers the ocean's food chain, how area is calculated, and more!
