America the Beautiful by Katharine Lee Bates, Chris Gall


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.

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.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
