There are many original historic photos and paintings, a few creative graphs, and some maps. The format is appropriate for age 7-8, including simple definitions with phonetic spellings to help kids sound out words correctly. There are four units: History, Geography, Economics and Civics. Topics include Egypt, China, early Virginians (native Americans), and the typical famous Americans like Washington, Lincoln, S.B. Anthony, H. Keller, Jackie Robinson and Jesse Jackson.
The book stresses our diversity in America and that Americans all have different backgrounds and skin color. I appreciate the pages suggesting how to be a good citizen (recycling, trustworthiness, and willingness to help in the community).
