Show children the bigger context of American history. Written by award-winning children's author Marc Aronson with John W. Glenn, this innovative title leads children through the causes and consequences of the defining age of exploration.


The World Made New provides a detailed account of the charting of the New World and the long-term effects of America's march into history. The text uses primary sources to bring history to life and features evocative profiles of the major explorers of the age.


The book is beautifully illustrated with full-color artwork, multiple timelines, and six custom National Geographic maps. The text and layout combine to provide an enlightening overview of New World exploration, and outline the historical context for the discoveries that literally changed the world.


The narrative carries young readers through this age of glorious, and sometimes inglorious, adventure. Follow the timeline of history unfolding; how the early colonies were established; how dissemination of products like the potato, tomato, tobacco, and corn made the Americas a major part of the new world economy; and how the Caribbean became a major trading hub.

John W. Glenn is an editor and producer of illustrated nonfiction reference books for children and adults. He has a BA in history from the University of Chicago.


"This splendid, exciting, beautifully illustrated account of the Age of Exploration relates events so dramatic that they would have been dismissed as implausible fiction if they hadn't actually happened. Don't think of this as 'just' a book for kids: children's parents will find it equally gripping and informative.—Jared Diamond, professor of geography at UCLA, author of the best-selling Pulitzer Prize–winner Guns, Germs, and Steel
