Featured Author: Genevieve Foster


Genevieve Foster (1893-1979) is best known for her parallel tellings of history in her World Books series. Due to her personal experience reading history books as a child, which left her confused and frustrated, she was inspired to show what was happening all over the world simultaneously and became a trend setter in this style. Using her skills as an artist she contributed her own illustrations and maps to all her works making them both delightful and easily recognizable. Her works are available in many languages and if you're a site member you should hop on over and add some of her nineteen books to your wishlist or see how close you are to finishing your collections of her works!

Reshelving Alexandria has been a tremendous blessing to our family, saving us both time and money. Before Reshelving Alexandria, finding living literature for our children was a painstaking and time-consuming process; scouring book lists, hunting through blog posts and podcast notes, researching titles and subjects and authors and illustrators, speculating as to reading level and suitability for our family.

Because Reshelving Alexandria has already done this for me, bringing together the best of the best of living literature in a searchable and easily navigable database, it allows me to both focus and stretch our book budget by narrowing down my search to precisely those books that are the best fit for our family and then helping me to easily take advantage of free online books and used book searches to grow our family library. And all the time I am saving? What a joy to re-invest that in reading these books with my children!"
