ABC of America by Kim Bellefontaine
Great book for beginning readers just learning their ABC’s! Cute illustrations! It kept both my boys attention – and really could be used anytime of the year, not just around Independence Day.
The Journey of the one and only Declaration of Independence by Judith St. George
My Nathan is still a bit young for this book, but it kept his attention well still. It teaches about the history of the declaration, but in fun and exciting approach. I was SUPER happy with how fun and exciting the author kept it. Nathan stayed interested and we would talk to story throughout the book by using the pictures to help Nathan understand!
Fourth of July Mice by Bethany Roberts
Follow a little family of mice through a day full of fun 4th of July activities – swimming, eating, having a parade and fireworks! Super cute book! Both my boys enjoyed it! Nathan even brought up how last 4th of July we went to a parade and had a BBQ with our family and did fireworks!
Corduroy’s 4th of July by Don Freeman
This is an adorable little board book for the little ones – who doesn’t love Corduroy? Nuff said!
Scrambled States of America by Laurie Keller
This is a cute book about geography! My boys were too young for it, but they thought the pictures were fun. But, obviously couldn’t keep up with learning about all the states. But, it is for sure one that I’ll be using a lot more when they are older!
The Great Seal of the United States by Norman Pearl
This book was well written – it reads as if Benjamin Franklin is talking to you, which I thought gave it a fun approach. I’m sure most of the information Nathan won’t remember, but we did pull out a dollar bill and get to compare the Seal on our dollar bill as they went through and explained it. He has even requested to read again and compare a “different” dollar! haha 🙂
I would love for you to comment and leave your review on any of these books if you’ve read them! Or, if you have any other favorite 4th of July books, let me know!
