Those Rebels, John and Tom

John Adams and Thomas Jefferson didn’t always agree, but this book explores their teamwork in a colorful and creative look at their differences and similarities. Award winners Barbara Kerley and Edwin Fotheringham researched the lives of these two great men to deliver an accurate but witty biography to young children.

F is for Flag

This endearing picture book looks at the American flag’s many homes, from school yards, to boats, to neighborhood houses. Easy to follow and easier to love.

Sybil Ludington’s Midnight Ride

Paul Revere wasn’t the only one who made a famous midnight run. Sybil Ludington was only 16 when she answered her nation’s call for heroes, and she and her horse rode for miles to alert her countrymen about the approaching British soldiers. This inspiring look at Sybil’s life reminds us that anyone can change history with a little courage.
