Summary Do you love America? Are you proud to call this country your home? You want your kids to love America as much as you do, but when popular culture tells them it's cooler to bash this country than to love it, how can you teach them to be proud and loyal citizens? As mothers themselves, author Blyth and former presidential speechwriter Winston have set out to create a real-world resource all parents can use to teach their kids about the greatness of America's past, the promise of its future, and the important role each of us plays in this democracy. This book shows you how to make patriotism a priority without it becoming a chore for you or your kids. Part treatise on patriotism, part American history primer, part civics lesson, it's the antidote to the America-bashing our children hear every day.--From publisher description.
