Product Description:

Learn the history behind our country's most important places, interesting objects, national holidays, and inspiring words with this colorful book. It begins by defining the meaning of the word "symbol," then progresses to explaining the meaning and historical background of over twenty US symbols. Plymouth Rock, the Statue of Liberty, our flag, the Liberty Bell, the Declaration of Independence, and the National Anthem are some of the topics covered. Each topic is explained in about two to four pages and is enhanced with colorful (sometimes humorous) illustrations. The last section of the book explains the origin of nine US holidays, including the date each was first celebrated. The back of the book includes a glossary, index, list of books to read, and a dedication page explaining the symbolism of New York's World Trade Center and 9/11/01. By Shelia Keenan; illust by Ann Boyajian. 64 pgs, pb. ~ Lisa
