Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal

K - Gr 4 - These attractively illustrated books introduce the history and significance of two of America's national symbols. In Liberty Bell, students will learn about the purchase of the bell, its Revolutionary War history, its symbolic use by abolitionists, and its famous fissure. Bald Eaglereviews the historical debate over the national bird, common traits associated with it, depictions of the bald eagle on currency and on the Great Seal, and facts about the species itself. Skeens's contemporary watercolors give a friendly and accessible cast to the symbols and events under consideration. With their large font, short sections, and clear writing, these titles will satisfy teachers looking for straightforward introductions to core democratic symbols for early primary-grade students or for elementary-aged new Americans.-Jayne Damron, Farmington Community Library, MI

Meet the Author


Norman Pearl has written 10 children’s books. He writes on both science and social studies topics and can’t decide which he likes better.

Norman lives in tropical Miami, Florida, with his wife and son. They have a small, white, fluffy dog named Max. Max thinks he is human, so the four of them go just about everywhere together.
Norman usually writes his books under a palm tree while sipping lemonade. When he needs a break, he jumps in the pool for a swim. Usually, the rest of the family follows him in.
