Description
Where did America come from? What does it mean to be an American? What makes America great?No volume will provide more compelling and inspiring answers to our children's questions than William Bennett and Michael Hague's marvelous new treasury,The Children's Book of America.Filled with history and folktales, songs and poems, heroes and everyday Americans, this indispensable book is a classic collection of great Americana, accompanied by wonderful paintings that bring to life in rich detail the story of our nation's heritage.Like its bestselling predecessors,The Children's Book of VirtuesandThe Children's Book of Heroes,this beautifully illustrated collaboration will provide children with a marvelous introduction to such virtues as compassion, perseverance, ingenuity, and hard work. As William Bennett and Michael Hague show, these traits have shaped American history and lie at the heart of our national character.Martin Luther King has a dream -- and racial justice in America will never be the same. Walt Whitman listens -- and weaves poetry from the lilting music of Americans at their labors. A great Indian chief mourns -- and the path to his wife's side opens up the Grand Canyon.From tales of national heroes like Abigail Adams and Robert E. Lee, to stories of adventure and ingenuity such as Lewis and Clark's explorations and Thomas Edison's inventions, to songs and poems about American life like "Home on the Range" and "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,"The Children's Book of Americais a marvelous celebration of our nation's history and spirit for the youngest Americans.
