Letter: History for kids
I read a book. It was almost as easy as ABC. Well, it was a children’s book by Lynne Cheney and illustrated by Robin Preiss Glasser. What’s the name? “America, a Patriotic Primer.” The epic story depicted here made me realize how great this country is. Who wrote the 10 Bill of Rights? Sure, it’s the history of the U.S.A., more so than many history books. It encourages hope that America will find good solutions.
The spirited drawings, the nation’s capital. The U.S.A. map shows the main attractions of the individual states.
Please try it at Greenfield Public Library, Children’s Section No. J-973. You will be surprised and pleased.
“Few tales are more wondrous than that of the founders of this country seeking independence and — against the odds — winning it. Few plots are more thrilling than their deciding to establish a representative form of government and — against the odds — succeeding.” Lynne Cheney
