The American Patriot’s Almanac by William J. Bennett and John T.E. Cribb

The American Patriot’s Almanac, by William J. Bennett and John T.E. Cribb

 

 

The American Patriot’s Almanac is both an academic resource and a story book.  Bennett and Cribb have given Americans a beautifully written keepsake of mementos reminding us why we should be proud to be Americans.

 

The book is divided into months of the year. Each month tells a different story of America, for example:  starting in January with the Flags of the Revolutionary War, continuing in June it includes the Declaration of Independence, and ending in December with State Flags, Facts, and Symbols.

 

No historical event or document is missing. The book reinforces well known facts, and then introduces unknown information that surprises readers. This makes the book interesting and fun for all ages.

 

As a former middle school history teacher, I would recommend The American Patriot’s Almanac as a classroom resource. If only textbooks were presented to students in this format, students would be enticed to study American history.

 

I also recommend this Almanac for every home in America. The format enables a family to easily read the monthly entries on daily basis. What an exciting way to promote the American Patriot in us all.
