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.
