Poetry Books for Patriots' Day

Rate this Entry
I had never heard of Patriots' Day until we moved to Massachusetts over a decade ago. Commemorating the battles of Lexington and Concord, the holiday is a huge deal in this area: parades and celebrations abound. Evidently the day is also celebrated in Maine, but it was completely off my radar during the four years I lived there.

While my crowd-shunning family rarely goes to parades, we do enjoy a patriotic read from time to time. Here, then, are a few books of American poetry for kids that we found last week at a local library.

For information about the books we found, please see the rest of the post here.

    Here in Maine we also supposedly celebrate this holiday but I don't see any celebrations going on! For us it just means one more day to get those taxes in!

    I love the book A Revolutionary Field Trip and of course The Midnight Ride of Paul Revere! I'm pretty sure if you don't like Paul Revere around here you're considered a Tory!
