    Are you a history buff? Or perhaps you just like trivia.

    Well, if you're fan of trivia and/or American history, the new, expanded edition of The Big Book of American Trivia is for you! This compilation is filled with so many questions that I had to wonder how much one could possibly know to actually get them all right.

    The day I received this book, I pulled it out and started using it on my family. We had so much fun with this. I will say, however, that I noticed those who haven't yet completed high school found the questions a bit challenging.

    This book is divided into several manageable sections--which makes it great since there is no index. If I want to stump someone with questions on sites and places within the United States, then I just go to the section titled So Many Sites to See. If I want to be more specific and stump them on capitols, then I'd go to the sub-section titled Capitols: Those State-ly Buildings.

    You'll find many various topics, such as leisure in America, entertainment, music in America, Rivers, memorials, presidents, and so much more.

    You can use this book time and time again--of course, there are so many questions inside this book that it might take you awhile before you stumble upon one that you haven't asked already.

    I highly recommend The Big Book of American Trivia. This book is ideal for history teachers, history buffs, families, and people who travel a lot, as it will give them something to do on their long trips.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book from Tyndale Publishers in exchange for an honest review.

    Fun, Fun, Fun.

    While I have collected trivia books for several years, most of them have focused on Biblical or church history. I was excited to discover this 360 page book of American History trivia. However, the book was not quite what I expected - but I was not disappointed.

    As I picked up the book, I expected to find a series of anecdotes - brief essays - giving trivial facts from American history. Rather, the book is a series of 3,000 questions (and answers). Topics include -

    * National, Regional, and Local history

    * Well-known monuments (National, Regional, and Local)

    American Personalities (Presidents, song writers, comedians, etc.)

    * Food

    * The arts

    * etc.

    1. In what year's World Series was "The Star-Spangled Banner" played at a sports event for the first time? (The answer can be found on page 239)

    2. What major East Coast city has a Cherry Blossom Festival every April? (The answer can be found on page 145)

    3. What outdoorsy president was the first president to ride in an automobile? (The answer can be found on page 205)

    4. What 20th century president was the first to be born in a hospital? (The answer can be found on page 259)

    These questions, taken from the back cover of the book, demonstrate that the book can be as much fun as it is educational.

    This review is based on free copy of the book received from the publisher for the purpose of writing this review.
