Stories of Great Americans for Little Americans (paperback)
This great introduction to American History features short biographical sketches about some of the most famous early Americans, including George Washington, Daniel Boone, George Rogers Clark, Benjamin Franklin, Louisa May Alcott, Washington Irving, Kit Carson, Benjamin West and more. The hardcover version is 163 pages and contains 52 chapters. The typeset is old-fashioned and some words are separated with hyphens for early readers. A paperback version is also available, which is 156 pages and features a more modern typeset. The content is the same, but fewer chapters are listed, as some of the related stories in the hardcover version have been combined into one chapter.
Looking for history books that will make you proud to be an American? Look no further! These books were written more than 100 years ago, much closer to the events that helped shape the United States into a great nation. Emphasis is on great Americans - meaning explorers, statesmen, war heroes, inventors, writers, scientists, artists, and plain ordinary people - who made a difference. The lives of these men and women demonstrate the virtues which children need to see modeled today. The stories are captivating, and the illustrations are beautiful. To make it easier on the teacher, study questions are provided at the end of each chapter.
