Enjoy this Grateful American™ reading recommendation!
Whether it’s via their tone, topic, or tenor, certain works just say “America.” Here is one such title, suggested by Grateful American™ Book Prize judge Dr. Neme Alperstein, a teacher of gifted and talented students in the New York City Public Schools system:
- Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation by Joseph J. Ellis. In this lively, riveting work, Pulitzer Prize-winning author Ellis explores the triumphs and stumbles of Alexander Hamilton, Thomas Jefferson, Aaron Burr, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, James Madison, and John Adams as they endeavored to build — and maintain — a functioning democracy.
Each year, the Grateful American™ Foundation, through its Book Prize, honors excellence in children’s historical nonfiction and fiction focused on the people and events that have shaped the U.S. since its birth. To learn more about the prize, click here.
