Publisher's Description


Liberty Lee is a patriotic mouse who has led an extraordinary life. Rather than spending his time running around and eating cheese, he helped our Founding Fathers create America. And now he’s telling his “tail” in Liberty Lee’s Tail of Independence. Written and illustrated by bestselling authors Peter and Cheryl Barnes, Liberty Lee’s Tail of Independence follows Liberty Lee as he participates in the pivotal moments of America’s birth. From reminiscing about his mous-cestors settling Jamestown to participating in the Boston Tea Party to helping his friend Thomas Jefferson draft the Declaration of Independence, Liberty Lee delights and educates children as he teaches them about the Pilgrims, King George, the American Revolution and the Founding Fathers! In addition to entertaining children, Liberty Lee’s Tail of Independence also includes teaching tools throughout the book to help parents and teachers educate their little ones about the key people, battles, and concepts that take center stage in our nation’s founding. Featuring a summary of the Declaration of Independence in rhyming verse and a “find the eagle” activity throughout the book, Liberty Lee’s Tail of Independence will fascinate and enlighten any child from 5 to 8 years old.

    Liberty Lees Tail of Independence by Peter W. Barnes and Cheryl Shaw Barnes is a refreshing and witty way to get your child engaged in learning about Americas Independence and the Constitution, written from a mouse perspective. It covered large amounts of information in a fun and captivating way. I read this book with my two kids (ages 6 and 13) each page initiated deep conversation about the information presented. It was simple enough for my 6 year old to understand and still informative enough for my 13 year to take it deeper in study. I was enthralled by the amount of information covered. The poetic and rhythmic format smoothly transported us back in time. The back of the book contains a section called The Tail End Resources for Parents and Teachers is an absolute asset to any homeschool library. It has short and very informative passages on The thirteen Colonies, The stamp Act, Declaration of Independence, Declaration of congress, and revolutionary War Battles Just to name a few. And thou it is meant to be for parents and teachers my 13 year old found this section to be his favorite.
