In honor of Independence Day, I have selected John, Paul, George & Ben by Lane Smith as this month's picture book. The book tells the stories of John Hancock, Paul Revere, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Thomas Jefferson with wonderful illustrations and wit to match. The book describes these five Founding Fathers and how they got their reputations. This is a wonderful book to share with young children and it can also be enjoyed equally by adults. Indeed, I read this book multiple times and each time found something new to laugh at. As a bonus, the book has extras such as facts on the Founding Fathers at the end. You can view a large image of the beautiful cover on the author's website.
