We rated this book:


A lot of people think America is the greatest country on Earth. This awesome book sets out to give an interesting overview of our great land and its long history that will engage the middle-grade reader. The Time for Kids books cover a lot of different topics with beautiful books that are designed to capture kids interest. America is a pretty big topic to take on. Yet author Katy Steinmetz packs a great deal into this big, handsome book. In 14 chapters, she takes readers through a good history and geography study of our nation, filling every page with short, punchy text blocks surrounded by illustrations, photographs, maps and more. The graphics are bright and inviting. Chapters cover such topics as Our Government, Tour the Fifty States, Moments that Changed America, America’s Role in the World, and much more. A twelve page time line, glossary, and Explore Some More — a section with government websites, museums and other organizations, reference work, and articles for further study — wrap things up. Young readers are sure to be enticed by this book and will be learning with every page without even knowing it. This book deserves a wide readership.
