This year we have focused on American History. I have really enjoyed teaching the girls all about how our wonderful country was built, the laws the govern it and the principles that it was founded upon. Being offered the opportunity to review Abraham’s Journey: A Celebration of the American Dream by Inspiring the American Dream just seemed to flow right into our history lessons. It really complimented our lesson especially coming so soon after our field trip to a local museum to see the Smithsonian Traveling Exhibit of Journey’s Stories.
Abraham’s Journey: A Celebration of the American Dream tells the story of a young boy, who through his faith, imagination and entrepreneurial spirit, sets out to achieve the American dream.
The young man, Abraham goes on a journey to figure out how to raise money to help buy Christmas gifts (if your children believe in Santa you might want to skip the line about the parents not being able to buy gifts that year). Through Abraham’s journey he comes in contact with historical figures, (in the back of the book are short biographies so no need to go research them) that help him to figure out what the American Dream is all about.
Wishing you many Blessings
