These aren't tall tales! Each story weaves a historical event (often around little known facts) about a famous "American" into a modern setting. Billy and Mary learn a lot from their family who are born storytellers. They find heroes to emulate and ways to resolve their own problems. Children can learn why Washington was a "reluctant" president or the questions that Franklin asked at the beginning of each meeting of his Junto Club or what happened after Custer had his hair cut. A "think" box of questions for discussion follow each story. Forty stories, each approximately 7 pages in length with a beautiful watercolor illustration.

This is the reader for the Grades-3&4 Supplement for Across America. It will fit well with any history study at this grade level, however. The type is smaller than in the Grade-2 Across America reader.
