Children of all ages are familiar with the alphabet poem; what better way to teach youngsters the principles of liberty? Each letter page features a symbol of the history which the letter represents; a historical flag; a definition from Noah Webster's 1828 American Dictionary
; a verse from the Bible; and a quote from Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanack
. The opposite page showcases related quotes, photographs of archival documents and artifacts, and plenty of facts on American history. The eight activity pages in the back provide a hands-on element to the lesson, and include seals and flags to color, notes on the dollar, how to cut a five-pointed star, and instructions on how to fold a flag. 79 non-reproducible pages, hardcover. Text pages are glossy; activity pages are perforated cardstock.
