The Light and the Glory for Children
God's Plan for America
by Peter Marshall and David Manual with Anna Wilson Fishel
Both The Light and the Glory and From Sea to Shining Sea, the first two books in Marshall and Manuel's best-selling U.S. history series, have been successfully adapted for children by Anna Fishel. Young readers can learn about God's hand in our nation's history in The Light and the Glory for Children. This book brings America's past to life: Christopher Columbus to George Washington.
Children ages nine to thirteen will learn about the events that led up to the Civil War, including the Mexican War, the Gold Rush, the skirmishes of Bleeding Kansas, and the emergence of Abraham Lincoln. Throughout, the focus is on the tragic issue of slavery, which brought America to the brink of destruction. Sounding Forth the Trumpet for Children will help kids understand God's purpose during a tumultuous time, showing them how ordinary men and women, willing to be used by God, can change the course of history.
"The Light and the Glory for Children" (grades 1-5) is a recommended spine book for TQ guide"American History 2." What is a "spine book"? Remember, in TruthQuest history, no single book is "required," however, there are a number of books that are referred to to create an educational/historical spine in which your student can "hang" all his new-found knowledge. If you are using TQ history, you may find it helpful to include one or two of these in your study.
