The American Patriot's Almanac by William J. Bennett and John T.E. Gribb

"Patriotism is more than just flying a flag," says William Bennett, "it's sticking it out through thick or thin (right or wrong.)" What do you know about America? Get to know your country better and love it more with William Bennett's help. This book is any history buff's dream. Good for the homeschooler too. Take a look at America daily with William Bennett's, The American Patriot's Almanac. This is a book of short daily readings of things that happened in America on that given day. It gives account of each day of the year. On a given day there is one main event that Mr. Bennett goes into detail on and then at the end of each day there is a History parade section that gives more events that can be looked up and studied about for those that wish more study. A lot of work and historical information is crammed into this book. It takes you day by day, and month by month through historical events through the year. The pages in this book tell the stories of heroes in uniform. It helps the reader see who we are as Americans. At the end of each month there is also a section of added information such has flag etiquette one month, fifty all-American movies to watch one month, learn about the great seal and what it stands for. The history of the flag and changes one month, and the list goes on. I could go on and on but I won't if you want a quick at your fingers history book this is your book.

It is a hardback book cover and the pages are rough edge to give it that old antique, scrapbook look. Very nicely done and would look nice just laying on the coffee table for quick read.
