Format: Paperback
We are studying the history of holidays for our Kindergarten year of homeschooling. "True Books: Independence Day" is a great jumping off point for our 4th of July study, briefly covering from Columbus to the present. It shouldn't be the only book you read though. I highly recommend reading the biography, "George Washington" by D'Aulaire and "Red, White, and Blue (All Aboard Reading)" by Herman with it. And if you want something just for fun... get "Yankee Doodle" by Gary Chalk.

I'm not sure what the reading level is... but as a read-aloud I feel that it works in the 5-8yr old range. The 9-12 age recommendation on the Amazon description seems off to me. If you are looking for a book in that range, try "Fireworks, Picnics, and Flags: The Story of the Fourth of July Symbols" by Giblin. For preschoolers I would suggest looking at the Independence Day (Rookie Read-About Holidays)series which has similar titles. This one was too much for my 3.5 year old to sit through.

I will be getting more books in this series.
