Did you know that the word “independence” never appears in the Declaration of Independence? Did you know that soldiers in World War I collected thousands of glowworms in jars to help them see at night?! Find out about the fun parts of U.S history with A.J and Andrea.


Becasue of the subject, there are some difficult words but in general, not too difficult.

For Children : Enjoy!
For Language Learners : expect some words related to politics and government systems.



To give you a sense of how the book is like, I attach the preview below. It’s fun yet informative.

The story in the picture is about how the teddy bears are called teddy bears.


There are 3 big parts.

1. How things were before the United States were established.
2. U.S presidents and history
3. Things related to a toilet.

Like other books in the series, you can find information in the conversations between A.J and Andrea.


If you want to read about U.S histories with a simple, well organized book? This is it. Why the United states were established, Why many immigrants moved over… etc. After going through the big events in the country’s history it talks about the Presidents. Actually, Not only the presidents, but also the people who are famous in the U.S. history are covered including Pocahontas, Sacagawea. Browsing through the history in the chronological order helped me to locate each individuals in the time line.

After all these, it talks about the toilet. Arlo is in love with toilet or dirty stuff. Well, consindering no history would have been there without a toilet, I guess it needed to be in the book with the history haha. It was interesting to know a famous toilet themed restaurant in Asia, A toilet museum in Asia. This part worked like a charm because it was going a bit boring right before, where it talks about the presidents…

I recommend this to Children and Adults who’d like to know US history!
