Which books will you read to celebrate American independence?


  1. I hope you had a good Independence Day celebration! We read America by Lynne Cheney. And listened to all the booming fireworks all night!

    1. What an inspired choice! If you love her books, you may want to check out We The People, the Story of the Constitution. It's a different format from the primer, but includes breathtaking paintings by Greg Harlin. Thanks!
