Publisher: Simon & Schuster
"A is for ABIGAIL ADAMS, who knew that women should be heard."
Synopsis: While there are many history books dedicated to the accomplishments of American men over the ages, there are plenty of American women who have, sometimes quietly and sometimes with explosive results, also made lasting contributions to their country. A IS FOR ABIGAIL takes a peak at some of those brave women who sacrificed much to follow their dream of making America a land of opportunity for all.
Why I liked it: I have always been fascinated with history and historical figures. The pages are full of wonderful illustrations crammed full of historical facts. It's a great book for homeschoolers as well as anyone just wanting to know more about the incredible lives of some amazing American women.
