My Review:
This is a great book to have as a homeschool family.  It is jammed packed with facts and information that will keep you or your kids occupied for hours.  With a preface to the Star Spangled this is an updated edition of the original book that was first published in 1997.  It includes original facts and questions as well as new ones.  Broke up into fourteen parts, you can find info on topics like Entertainment and Places, History and People.  It is meant for browsing, you can just pick it up and find a cool fact or even one that you may already know.  This has become a coffee table book in our house.  The kids love to ask each other questions from it.  We give it 2 thumbs up!
