Overview

Trinka Hakes Noble, the author of One for All: A Pennsylvania Number Book, continues her celebration of the Keystone State in The Pennsylvania Reader. Oh, Pennsylvania, how we praise thee, Land where the Quakers came to be free. Independence for all was your decree, When your famous bell rang for Liberty. Topics included are the history behind the state name (Penn's Woods), state symbols, distinguished citizens (Daniel Boone and Betsy Ross), and famous events (the reading of the Gettysburg Address). Original fiction such as a correspondence between cousins on either side of the Mason-Dixon Line and a Reader Theater drama provide ample opportunity for student/classroom interaction.
