This is a beautifully illustrated book edited by Constance Holland and published by McLoughtlin Bros.,Inc. as part of their "The Little Color Classics" series.

Stories include George Washington, The Pilgrims, and The 4th of July and are told in a simple language for the young reader. A great addition to your library and a wonderful display piece for your 4th of July celebrations. This book measures 6 3/4" high by 5" wide.
