Synopsis

America the Beautiful by Katharine Lee Bates, Chris Gall

From his unique perspective as the great, great grandnephew of 'America the Beautiful' writer, Katharine Lee Bates, Chris Gall transforms this beloved patriotic song into monumental works of art - from purple mountain majesties to gleaming alabaster cities. Honouring his ancestry and national pride, Gall pairs the beautiful lyrics with striking illustrations of notable American images such as Pike's Peak, the Tuskgee Airmen and firefighters raising the American flag at Ground Zero.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
