Patriotic Pups is a lively retelling of the events of the American Revolution. Following the proceedings are endearing puppies that find homes with American patriots, including George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and other great Americans. The pups follow their patriotic owners through the famous events of crossing the Delaware River, writing the Declaration of Independence, and other historical incidents. Nancy Arnold’s rhythmic recitation links the appeal of puppies to the importance of history in a way kids will enjoy and remember. These pups are an adorable family bunch and add their own fictional contributions to the founding of the United States. With illustrations by Ellen Berger.
