Here is the beginning of my patriotic book posts, just in time to get ready to celebrate Independence Day! These books pictured below I garnered from my recent “National Treasure” tour. I had the privilege of touring D.C. and other historic sites for a week at the end of May with some of my homeschool friends. We saw a lot of the things featured in the National Treasure Movie, so that’s why I call it my National Treasure tour. I went to the very room of the National Archives building depicted in the scene below. I saw the precious original founding documents of our nation. I also saw Washington’s personal copy of the Constitution with his notes in his own handwriting in Pennsylvania. So amazing!
It’s going to take me a while to download all the gems that I learned and the treasured memories I collected, here on the blog. I had soooooo much fun! Although my toenails still feel slightly bruised from all the walking with my swollen feet, inside my athletic shoes as we walked 10 plus miles a day touring. I’m used to wearing sandals here in AZ all day, LOL! It was totally worth it though!
OK, we’ll start with some of the books I saw. If you know me at all you know how much I’ve always loved books! The historic sites were cool as well of course. :-). I’ll post pictures of all those later.
So here’s Part 1 of My Patriotic Book List from My National Treasure Tour. These are the books I saw in the gift shop at Colonial Williamsburg. Find these at your local library or buy, and enjoy!
The image below is not a book cover, but a poster from the gift shop. I love American history! Stay tuned for more book finds in the coming weeks! I took pictures of books in all the gift shops I visited! Soooo…much…fun! When I look them up to find them in my public library’s online catalog, I feel like I’m on a treasure hunt and safari!
