With the 4th of July celebrations almost under way, I wanted to do something a little more with children this year, and teach them not only about the history of our country's birth, but talk to them about some of our history's influential people. Thankfully Scholastic Parents has made it incredibly easy for me to find some books that will make talking to my kids about some of the Great American people. They created a list of Great American Picture Book Biographies.
From George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln, JFK, Martin Luther King Jr, Susan B. Anthony, to Frederick Douglass, Thomas Edison, to The Wright Brothers, Harriet Tubman, Helen Keller, and more. Check out the full list of Great American picture book biographies for Kids.
I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen
Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
