"How did America become the land of the free?"

Sweet Land of Liberty
by Callista Gingrich
Kids Wings Top Flight Book

Ellis the Elephant wanted to know how America became the land of the free, so he went to the library! He read a book about the Pilgrims. It helped him to imagine himself there at the first Thanksgiving.

Then, he read a book about the Boston Tea Party. He imagined that he was there, too.

Through books at the library, Ellis the Elephant learned about the Founding Fathers and imagined that he was there to sign the Declaration of indepence with them. When Ellis read about Washington crossing the Delaware, guess where he saw himself?

Now you can go through America's history with Ellis the Elephant in rhyming verses with full page cartoon illustrations.

Sweet Land of Liberty is the ideal picture book for an introduction to American History. The Kids Wings' Literature Guide will inspire your students to explore more of American history and provides pictures to color. Truly, no K-3 classroom in the USA should be without it!
