Books About America
From picture books to novels, silly tales to serious ones, these titles draw on America's heritage to create entertaining stories for kids. Check out Bad Kitty for President, which does a great job of explaining the U.S. political system, and Grace for President, which clarifies the role of the electoral college. See how hard women fought for voting rights in Around America to Win the Vote: Two Suffragists, a Kitten, and 10,000 Miles. And find out what the founding fathers were really like in The Founding Fathers: Those Horse-Ridin', Fiddle-Playin', Book-Readin', Gun-Totin' Gentlemen Who Started America. They're great selections for election season, Presidents' Day, the Fourth of July -- or anytime! Also check out our Books About the American Revolution and Historical Fiction lists.
