The One About J - John, Paul, George, and Ben

Nope, it's not a book about the Beatles. I know you were reading that and thinking, "Ben?  What about Ringo?"  Ha. Just kidding. 

Anywho. This is a great book for Presidents Day even though the only President mentioned in the title is George Washington. The other founding fathers covered are Paul Revere, John Hancock, and Benjamin Franklin.  So you could also include it when you study patriotism, the USA, and citizenship. 

Not only is this book chock full of great information about these men, but it's written in a way that excites the kiddos and gets them to really understand them.  They're no longer paintings of old dudes, they're brought to life as real people; kids they can relate to.  It's always fun to see the kids excited about history and their country. 

Now, this is a fairly new book, published within the last few years. So it may not be as widely known as others. But let me reassure you, this is one you will want to get acquainted with. One you'll turn to each year and it will become a favorite. 

So, interested?  Think you'll want to give it a shot?  Do you have any favorite books you use for Presidents Day and/or citizenship?  Share!

Thanks for hopping by!
