Awesome America: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About the History, People, and Culture, by Kathy Steinmetz, is a comprehensive, fun introduction to the history of the good old U.S. of A. It's packed with photos, stats, timelines, and fascinating facts...
Chapter 1, of course, starts with "Our Beginning", followed by "Our Government" and "Our Presidents".
There's also a "Tour the Fifty States" chapter, where your child will learn what each state's "claim to fame" is, as well as each state's nickname.
Other chapters include: "Coming to America", "Moments That Changed America", "Civil Rights", "Great Americans" (highlighting Americans from Babe Ruth to Mark Twain to Frank Lloyd Wright), and "America's Home-Grown Gifts to the World", to name a few.
Chapter 13, "One of a Kind", is especially fun with topics such as "Who is on the $100,000 bill", "How to talk like an American", and "Top U.S. tourist spots."
There's something here for ALL AGES! My kids would have loved this book, and I know yours will.
