Celebrity Pick: Lynne Cheney

America: A Patriotic Primer is an A B C picture book that takes us through America's history.

"G is for God in whom we trust. Freedom to worship as they chose brought people to America. Freedom to worship as we choose sustains our country today."

This is a pretty large picture book with a lot of side notes and how to's like how to fold the American flag. It's a good book to check out of the library.

Our 50 States: A Family Adventure Across America Illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser

This is more like a resource book than a storybook. Each state or commonwealth gets it's own page or two, and there you'll find things like the state bird, big cities, state motto, famous people born there, big events, and other interesting facts.

Did you know?:

Pennsylvania ranks first in the nation in mushroom production.

Six million tulips bloom in the city of Holland, MI each May.

At its deepest point, Hells Canyon in Idaho is deeper than the Grand Canyon.

These and many more facts can be found. This book is better for Elementary Age children and would be a good resource book to keep on your shelves at home.
