America: A Patriotic Primer is a succinct history of the United States, an ABC of the principles on which this country was founded, and a book for children and families to pore over, discuss, and cherish.
A is for America,
the land that we love.
B is for the
Birthday
of this country of ours....
To choose the twenty-six people and ideas that comprise the book, Lynne Cheney has drawn on a lifetime of learning about the American past, and on the inspiration that comes from witnessing recent history firsthand. Illustrator Robin Preiss Glasser imbues Mrs. Cheney's words with childlike joy through her exuberant drawings. Together they have created a patriotic primer, a book that teaches history by celebrating the diversity, tenacity, and faith of the American people.

This A to Z of America frames the story -- and the miracle -- of our country.

Lynne Cheney has loved American history since she was a child and hopes to help today's children love it too. "America's story is a compelling one," she says, "and it helps us understand how fortunate we are to live in freedom." Mrs. Cheney, who has a Ph.D. from the University of Wisconsin, is a widely published author. She co-authored one of her books, a history of the U.S. House of Representatives, with her husband, Vice President Dick Cheney. A former chair of the National Endowment for the Humanities, Mrs. Cheney is currently a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

The Vice President and Mrs. Cheney have two daughters and three granddaughters. Mrs. Cheney is pictured above with children whose relatives are navy personnel assigned to the U.S. Naval Observatory, the Vice President's residence in Washington, D.C. Mrs. Cheney is donating her net proceeds from this book to the American Red Cross and to projects that foster appreciation of American history.

  • Wonderful Book

    I bought 2 copies of this book and gave it to my neighbors' children on 9-11-06. They loved it and so did their parents. It's written wonderfully and the illustrations captured the children's imaginations.. Every American should read this to their children.

  • Nice book for the granddaughters.

    I thought this would be a nice book for our 9-year-old granddaughter and a little different from what she usually reads. Her birthday is coming up so she hasn't read it yet, but to me it is a lovely book from a respected author. The illustrations and paper quality are also excellent.

    This is a beautiful book! Our daughter loves to tell me the things that she has learned from it...and enjoys the illustrations and information it contains. The other two books (A is for Abigail and Our 50 States) by Lynn Cheney are also highly recommended!
