Kostyal tells the story of the great American heroes who created the Declaration of Independence, fought the American Revolution, shaped the U.S. Constitution... and changed the world. The era's dramatic events, from the riotous streets in Boston to the unlikely victory at Saratoga, are punctuated with lavishly illustrated biographies of the key founders—Alexander Hamilton, John Adams, Ben Franklin, Thomas Paine, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, and James Madison—who shaped the very idea of America. An introduction and ten expertly rendered National Geographic maps round out this ideal gift for history buff and student alike. Filled with beautiful illustrations, maps, and inspired accounts from the men and women who made America, Founding Fathers brings the birth of the new nation to light.

For some, patriotism means flags and parades, for others it means ''My country right or wrong.'' But true patriotism is more complex than that and, as Alan Axelrod observes in this revealing review of our history, is built on a bedrock of understanding—who we are as individuals and as a nation, how our ideals and our democracy have evolved, and what it really means to be an American. It's a challenge that calls for an open mind and a clear perspective on the people, events, and issues that shape our society—exactly what 1001 Events That Made America provides.

George vs. George - Hardcover
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Books/Kids Books and Atlases/History

Author-illustrator Rosalyn Schanzer takes a unique and lively approach to the story of the American Revolution by weaving the tale around two quite similar leaders—George Washington and King George III—with two very different viewpoints. In contrast to many American history books, George vs. George allows kids to view the events from both sides—with a pinch of humor. Impeccably researched narrative and detailed full-color paintings show glimpses of life in both England and Colonial America and present a broad view of the events leading up to and during the Revolutionary War.

Building Liberty: A Statue is Born
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Books/Kids Books and Atlases/History
Here's a great book for showing kids the determination and energy that went into constructing, shipping, and assembling one of America's most celebrated symbols of freedom and democracy. Through the eyes of four fictional boys, readers will be transported back to the 19th century to witness the evolution of Lady Liberty from the time the monument was built in Paris up through her highly anticipated arrival in New York. Each of the characters helps to illuminate a different stage in the process—the apprentice in French sculptor Frederic-Auguste Bartholdi's studio; a worker on the ship that carried Liberty across the Atlantic; a newsboy on the streets of New York; and an ironworker who helped erect the grand monument in New York Harbor. Vibrant, full-color paintings throughout, as well as detailed technical drawings to show how each part of the statue was assembled, make this a highly visual book that will appeal to even the most reluctant readers.
