The Story of America
The Story of America: An Adventure into American History is a book about—you guessed it—the story of America. This book tells of the history of America—from Columbus to the Space Race. The DYKA (Do You Know About…) parts show facts that are interesting about our country. This book reflects on what we learned in Social Studies in fourth grade: Columbus, the Boston Tea Party, and Lewis and Clark. Did you know that Little Rock, Arkansas, closed school because of the Little Rock Nine? It’s true! No, it’s not nine chickens, a troop, or even nine shoes! The Little Rock Nine is a group of African-American kids who enrolled at an all-white school in Little Rock during the Civil-Rights era. Did you know the first nickelodeon movie-theater in America opened in Pittsburgh—where my Godmama Shannon lives—in 1905, where you could watch movie shorts for just a nickel? That is true! Don’t know about the history of America? You’ll have to read the book to find out! Readers who like nonfiction and are ages seven and up can enjoy this book.
