The Best-Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was a blockbuster success, remaining on the New York Times bestseller list for 15 weeks with more than 500,000 copies in print. Now, Caroline Kennedy shares with readers an assortment of her own favorite American writings. The works collected here — which span centuries and styles — have one thing in common: all are emblematic of our country's patriotism and pride.

Caroline Kennedy researched all of the selections included in A Patriot's Handbook, wrote the introduction, and added personal commentary to each section. This elegantly packaged collection is the perfect gift for anyone in search of a reminder of what our country's spirit is made of.

"Over the past year we have all thought about what it means to be an American. I realized that I want my own children to know more about the ideals upon which this country was founded and the sacrifices that have been made to pass them on to us. This book is intended to help families explore the foundations of our freedom and to celebrate our heritage."(Caroline Kennedy)

This book was invaluable in my American History classes, when I taught American History in 5th grade. It's wonderful,and every household  should have a copy to refer to and to share with their families.

I'm not sure if there is a better compilation of prose, song, speech that allows such a wonderul glance into the American spirit. I've shared excerpts with my children as we find our way across America looking for a new place to call home, discovering America our way, together. It has been a blessing.

If there is any way to describe what the spirit of America is, this book does it! Read it, and share it.
