As a child, I loved writing reports. For me, doing research has always been a kind of treasure hunt. My treasures are the facts that create pictures of past worlds and faraway places. I've put those facts into nearly 100 biographies, histories, and science books for young readers. I've also written two picture books and several interactive adventures that place you, the reader, inside the story. I hope that all my books lead you to imagine yourself in some intriguing place among fascinating people. Every book should take readers on new adventures in this big, beautiful world of ours.

Happy travels!

New book on the way

I'm excited to announce the upcoming publication of The Big, Bold, Adventurous Life of Lavinia Warren.

Lavinia was a remarkable little woman (she only reached a height of 32 inches), who didn't let her diminutive size in keep her from living life large. I hope you'll add it to your shelf or even order it now, pre-pub, so you'll get it as soon as it comes out.

“United States.”
Elizabeth Raum, World War II: An Interactive History Adventure

“You begin following the news in the papers, just like your dad does. Germany is not alone in preparing for war. In 1936 Italy and Japan join with Germany to form the Axis Powers. Italy, under its dictator, Benito Mussolini, wages war in Africa. In Asia, Japan is invading China. In 1938 you read about the German Army’s march into Austria. The next September you hear that 1.5 million German troops attacked Poland and claimed that nation for Germany.”
Elizabeth Raum, World War II Naval Forces: An Interactive History Adventure
