Our Liberty Bell
Our Liberty Bell by Henry Jonas Magaziner, illustrated by John O’Brien. (New York: Holiday House, 20017)/This book was a quick read and I liked it because it was “patriotic.” I learned things about the Liberty Bell that I didn’t know and for kids it was contained a snapshot survey of a wide swath of American history. I would have preferred color illustrations. The illustrations were whimsical and I think serious illustrations might have contributed more.
