Product Description

Originally published in 1955, A Child's First Book of American History is written in the grand, dramatic, patriotic style of early American readers. Beautifully illustrated by James Daugherty, colored or sepia-tone illustrations stretch across nearly every page, and invoke the past with a sense of grandeur. Covering both the grand events of history as well as the "smaller" changes and awakenings that have made up our country, chapters cover American history from Leif Ericson to the founding of Jamestown to Valley Forge to Lewis & Clark and Normandy Beach during WWII. Chapters on individuals and broader changes in America include those focusing on American education & McGuffey readers, whaling, the Model T, Thomas Edison, baseball, and Lindbergh's flight to Paris. A sweeping epic that will captivate students!

320 cream-colored, illustrated pages; indexed; softcover. 8.5" x 11" x 1".

Please Note: Some opinions used in the 1950s would now be considered to be stereotypical.

    After reading through V.M. Hillyer's books, "A Child's History of the World" and "A Child's Geography of the World" I began searching for a book written on the topic of American history in a similar format. I did find a book titled "The Rainbow Book of American History," by Earl Schenck Miers which fit the bill. However, the book had gone out of print. Thanks to Beautiful Feet Books, this literary gem is back in print for future generations to enjoy. To begin with the book has a new name, "A Child's First Book of American History." The book's layout has been revised, and the color illustrations by James Daughtery are bolder and brighter thanks to modern technology.

    "A Child's First Book of American History" is a storybook, written in a narrative format with the author telling his children the story of our country. The book covers the time period from Leif Erickson to the dropping of the atomic bomb of World War II. To enhance the text James Daughtery has created memorable illustrations to aid the narrative.

    "A Child's First Book of American History" is a wonderful way to introduce your child to the people, places and events which have molded and shaped our nation.
