The Story of the Liberty Bell, by Natalie Miller
Five out of five stars
This is a book that I loved reading when I was in elementary school. It is a brief and understandable history of one of the most revered American national symbols. While most people know that it is cracked, the general belief is that the present crack was generated the first time it was rung. That is not the case, the Liberty Bell has an extensive history of being recast as well as being taken on tours across the United States.
A brief book packed with a great deal of history, this is one of the best and most educational books for elementary school children.
