In my last update on United States history we ended at the Colonial Era. That was back in April and I wanted to share a list of books Madison has read since.
The next book was one of Madison’s all time favorites. I am sure she will read it again in the future.
She also watched Liberty Kids.
We spent a long time reading about the Constitution. Madison ended up getting burned out when we got to the Amendments, so we will go back and cover those in a little bit. The book Our Constitution Rocks is awesome! It is on the conservative side. It lays out each clause by explaining what it means, the bottom line, what does it mean to me..etc, so kids can easily understand what each clause of the Constitution means. It is one of the best books we have ever read and extremely important in my opinion. The Amazon link gives more explanation, but I would rate this book a 15 on a scale of 1-10. 🙂
I realized that I was probably leaving out gaps of important information and since we had a summer reading book list as well. Reading through United States history was taking longer than I anticipated it to, so I decided to have her listen to the following book on audio to make sure we were covered. I will do the same with this series going forward for each time period.
