To help teach little learners about our incredible country, I made a list of books all about America that they will surely love. Read these books for President’s Day, election time, 4th of July, Veteran’s Day, for an America theme, or for a unit about American symbols and the flag.
Students can learn about voting, US symbols such as Lady Liberty, past presidents, and so much more. The best part about these books is that they make learning fun, as books should!
