I hate admitting this, but I was not a fan of history growing up. I thought it was boring and I wanted nothing to do with it. Now, I wish I had paid more attention, since Broxton seems to have a million questions. My answers are one of 2 -
First up- go ask your daddy. Marc loves history and seems to know a lot about it.
Second response? Well, lets look it up together and see!
I think part of the reason it was so boring was not only the way the teachers taught it, but also the books were so cut and dry and had nothing to offer. That was why I was eager to see what this book, From Sea to Shining Sea by Callista Gingrich was all about. In this book (which is book four in the Ellis the Elephant Series) we follow Ellis as he starts this book off meeting George Washington, the First President. We learn about the Louisiana Purchase and the Lewis and Clark expedition. This is a cute book that gives enough information to grab their attention, but then also gives plenty of resources available at the back of the book is you want to go further into explanation with the child. I really enjoyed it and think that all of these books would be a great addition to a child's library.
In preceding books, Sweet Land of Liberty, Land of the Pilgrims’ Pride, and Yankee Doodle Dandy, Ellis learns about pivotal moments that have shaped America. Now, in From Sea to Shining Sea, America’s favorite time-traveling pachyderm discovers a new and growing nation along with George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Lewis and Clark, Sacagawea and others.
Authored by Callista Gingrich and illustrated by Susan Arciero, From Sea to Shining Sea will delight those who want to know how brave Americans forged a growing nation and spread freedom from coast to coast.
