Great illustrations, simple language and a wonderful historical telling of how America began.

This book is about the history of America and how our nation began. It is the story of the fourth of July and what we celebrate on that day. This book is great to read to kids to explain to them what the fourth of July is. The book has very realistic photos as well which are great for children so they can imagine the actual events. It also makes the story seem more real. ( )

This is a perfect first reader to introduce American history. The book includes many Revolution War heroes: Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, and George Washington. It is a very good basic reader that makes learning the history of Independence Day fun. ( )

An excellent primer to the beginnings of the United States of America. Dalgliesh explains especially well in simple language the transition from colonies to country. Well worth reading in early elementary years.
