I love learning about history. And it is something we should expose kids to as well. We have a fun collection at home of books about the American Revolutionary War.
I have these books because I want them to have access to the information when we are learning about the subject. I have them read a few of these books around the 4th of July. I want them to understand why that date is so important.
Plus these books went so great with the American Revolutionary War Pack.
There are affiliate links below on Amazon for the books. You can get some additional information and some times a look inside the book there.
