Happy Fourth of July! As we commemorate this special day, I wanted to let you know about this fun book that is appropriate for days like today. The book, How to Raise an American: 1776 Fun and Easy Tools, Tips, and Activities to Help Your Child Love this Country
, was written by Myrna Blyth, former editor of Ladies Home Journal, and Chriss Winston, former presidential speech writer. As the title suggests, the book includes ideas on how to raise a patriotic child. Some suggestions include reading a book about the signing of the Declaration of Independence, going to a town parade and watching fireworks together. Little things can accomplish a lot!
Blyth wrote an article
last year on National Review that describes more tips from her book. Enjoy!
