Why I Want Kids to See Themselves in the Story
I’m Helene, founder of Past Times, crafter, and children’s book writer. An archivist by profession, I love to find the stories behind historical documents. My passion is bringing historical narratives to life for children, classrooms, and families. I want to help kids see themselves in the story, to humanize our histories and heritage, and make history come alive through imagination and play.
