WHAT IS AMERICA?
Michelle Medlock Adams
Synopsis
"What is America?" is part of the best-selling series that includes "What is Christmas?" and "What is Easter?"

In this charming board book, Adams introduces little ones to the beliefs and ideals that make America unique. Heartfelt and humorous questions ponder what America might be about--the flag, the Fourth of July, the Statue of Liberty. Readers quickly learn that America is about more than symbols and monuments. It's a land of freedom and democracy where dreams come true. Whimsical artwork and rhyme will capture kids' imaginations as they explore what America means to them.

From the Author
"'What is America?' accentuates the core values of our exceptional nation and, through engaging words and pictures, inspires hope in the American dream. Well done.” Mark Hancock, Chief Executive Officer, Trail Life USA

“At a time when vitriol dominates our political dialogue, what a great book this is. A simple sentiment, with a message that all will love, in a language that kids will understand. I am excited to share this with my children and see the discussion that unfolds.” Ryan Sitton, Family Man, Entrepreneur, Inventor, CEO, and Elected Official
