There are too many to mention! LOL! What a great time we had in ADV! You'll get tons of books on America's journey into the west, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, Abe Lincoln, the early settlers, etc., etc. One of our favorite books was about a quilt a young slave girl made. She used pieces of fabric in her quilt to make a map which other slaves used to find their way to freedom in the north. My kids still ask for that book ~ Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt by Deborah Hopkinson.
Anyhoo, I'm not sure the list of books can be posted here (I think it's copyrighted material?), but I would begin looking for books to add by topic. I think you can view the topics by week on the main ADV page. I'll see if I can do the link thingy...
There are SO many great books to be read! Have a great year! :)
