Do you know where you were born? Were you born at a
hospital, or at home? How much did you weigh when you were
born? What did you have to eat for your ﬁrst birthday?
You don’t remember being born, do you? And you probably
don’t remember your ﬁrst birthday party! So how can you ﬁnd
the answers to these questions?
You can ask your parents. They can tell you about things
that happened long ago, before you were old enough to remember. They can tell you stories about when you were a baby.These stories are your “history.” Your history is the story of
what happened to you from the moment you were born, all the
way up to the present. You can learn this history by listening to
your parents. They remember what happened when you were born.
And they probably took pictures of you when you were a baby. You
can learn even more about your history from these pictures. Did
you have hair? Were you fat or thin? Are you smiling or frowning?
What are you wearing? Do you remember those clothes?
You have a history!
