Interesting, Handy Book for All Americans
on April 9, 2016
I began reading this book like any other, starting on page one, but soon decided to read it by the calendar date...so if today is December 9th, I read the entry for this day as well as the "American History Parade," which are additional items (honorable mentions?) that also happened on this day in American history. The entries range from what I would call serious history (Truman ordering the seizure of the nation's steel mills) to interesting trivia (the invention of items such as the safety pin and Teflon).
Along the way, Bennett and Cribb also treat us to additional information, such as Flag Etiquette, Fifty American Quotes, and a review of amendments to the U.S. Constitution.
Definitely a great addition to anyone's library, and certainly something to share with children and young adults.
