American Patriot's Almanac by William J. Bennett and John T.E. Cribb
It's a fairly good sized book, very sturdy, and one that would be great for keeping on your coffee table. It has a lot of information yet it's easy to read and not too much to take in all at once. It is definately something my 11-year-old son would not hesitate to pick up. I think the daily format makes it more appealing to young readers. They can learn some interesting history in a short time. I think they will return to it often.
It has a lot of useful information included in sections, such as; Flags of the Revolutionary War, The Declaration of Independence, The Bill of Rights, State Flags, Facts, and Symbols, and much more. It's really a great tool. And while it's set up in a daily format, you may just want to read it through like any other book, or even refer back to it often as a reference. Either way, I think you'll enjoy it.
