The American Patriot's Almanac by William J. Bennett & John T.E. Cribb


After the most recent election, this book is SO needed in homes today! With heart, character and accuracy, "The American Patriot's Almanac" gives the tradition of patriotism a fresh, new look.

Designed for a year's worth of reading, "The American Patriot's Almanac" is stuffed with historical information about our country. Each day's reading actually took place on that date years ago, like the day the Pentagon was finished, and when Andrew Jackson was born.

At the end of each day, is the American History Parade of facts. These would make a great quiz, home school moms! Get to know America one day at a time, and learn why we need to be proud to be Americans.

Wrapping up each month is an interesting topic, such as the history of the American Flag, Flag Etiquette, and the text of the Constitution. This book is rich in detail and rich in history, helping us learn where we've been so we may know where we're headed.

William Bennett is known for his patriotic writings, and this is the cream of the crop. From the design to the layout, this book is absolutely gorgeous. Get your copy now, and kick off 2009 with some fascinating history facts.

I'm giving "The American Patriot's Almanac" five out of five bookmarks, with a flag pendant as a charm. This truly is perfect for home school families--we plan on reading our copy daily next year!

Happy Reading!
