The American Patriot's Almanac by William J. Bennett and John T.E. Cribb

The American Patriot’s Almanac is a very interesting book and wonderful concept. It presents daily readings for this day in American history. In addition to the daily reading that offers a brief synopsis of the event described for that day there are a number of single sentence items for that day in history.

I found the format of the book very convenient and well organized. Each item has a date so you can start at anytime and read a page a day to make it through the entire year. The items presented for each day are interesting and, while some are well known, others are more obscure. Each is presented in a quick and easy to read format. The book is divided into chapters for each month and after each month there are also interesting sections on useful and historical information such as “The History of the Stars and Stripes” and “Flag Etiquette: Guidelines for Displaying and Handling the U.S. Flag.”

Anyone interested in learning more about U.S. History in an easy and fun way will enjoy this book. I would recommend it to both novice and studied history buffs!

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Thomas Nelson as part of the BookSneeze program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
