Betsy Ross: The American Flag, and Life in a Young America
Welcome to PowerPlus Books. This new imprint, which will be launching in Fall 2001, is aimed at grades four to eight, written at the fifth grade reading level. (PowerKids Press Books are at the third grade level.) The PowerPlus imprint is designed to explore a wide range of subject areas, especially history and science, to meet the needs of upper elementary and middle school students. These books help students with research, reports, projects, and assignments. Supplementing the curriculum and classroom work, these books offer students a level of specificity and detail that a chapter in a more general textbook cannot supply. Be sure to check out our subscription program for great savings.
The first series in the PowerPlus imprint is a 12-book collection: The Library of American Lives and Times. Coming in Fall 2001, these books are comprehensive biographical treatments of important Americans, emphasizing not just their lives, but the times in which they lived. Each book is 112 pages with dynamic four-color photos through out. Text is designed to make the navigation and comprehension of these more extensive supplemental books an easy transition from the third grade material under the PowerKids Press imprint.
As the seamstress of the American flag, an enduring symbol of liberty and democracy, Betsy Ross is an integral part of the fabric of American history. Her life story transcends that one great symbol, though. She was a mother, a businesswoman, and a contemporary of George Washington. This biography of Betsy Ross is a window not only into the life of a proud and courageous woman, but also into the early days of our nation.
