Books to Help Kids Celebrate America

 

From “One Nation Under God’ through “Ten Amendments in the Bill of Rights,” this is the perfect book to teach little patriots about the basics of America. One Nation Under God: A Book for Little Patriots guides children through the building blocks of America in a fun and engaging way. Beautiful full-color illustrations by Anthony Resto.

 

 

With breathtaking paintings and lots of fun facts, this book introduces young readers to such awesome wonders of America as the Mississippi River and Niagara Falls. Full color.

This is one small town parade readers shouldn’t miss! It starts with music and drums. What will come next? Cowboys on horseback? The baseball team? The fire engine? Or Miss Eelgrass with the green hair? And when the parade’s over and the streets start to clear, another spectacle is waiting up in the sky.

 

 

It’s the most patriotic of all holidays—Independence Day! The Holiday Mice take part in all the activities that make the Fourth of July fun: a parade, a picnic, a baseball game and sack race, and a refreshing dip in the stream. Even Mr. Mouse, the littlest mouse’s special toy, joins in the festivities. The best part of all comes at the end of the day: a spectacular fireworks show!

Packed with plenty of red, white, and blue and featuring the four Holiday Mice at their most adorable, this story about our nation’s birthday will delight readers young and old alike.

 

What happened on the Fourth of July long before there were fireworks and parades? Alice Dalgliesh takes young readers back to revolutionary times, back to the colonists’ desire for freedom and the creation of the Declaration of Independence. Simple text captures the excitement of the era, telling how word of Independence travelled up and down the thirteen colonies, touching the lives of everyday people throughout the land. Like all of Alice Dalgliesh’s work, The Fourth of July Story remains an American classic.

A Tree’s Christmas by James Andrew Bowen

A Tree’s Christmas by James Andrew Bowen must be one of the most beautiful, magical tales of the season ever written.

As has long been a family tradition, once the season is over the Christmas tree is taken out to the yard and placed in the garden to lay until spring. After this particular Christmas, the trees around the garden wake from their winter slumber to hear the story of the young fir and the important part he played in the family’s lives.

Once in a while a seasonal story touches your heart in such a way you can’t help but share it. That’s certainly true of A Tree’s Christmas. I smiled. I cried. It truly warmed my heart. This is a book that will be treasured for years to come. The reading of A Tree’s Christmas would be the perfect tradition to start in your home. I know I’ll be starting it in mine.
