I is for Independence, L is for Liberty, O is for Old North Church, and S is for Stars and Stripes in this wonderfully-illustrated alphabet book . Each letter’s two-page spread features a significant person, place, event, or symbol of Revolutionary America represented in a lovely oil-paint image on a hand-carved wooden sign, all replicas of those commonly-seen in colonial America. The illustrations alone make this book a must for elementary libraries. Even with the included timeline the information is too shallow to serve research purposes; that said, the book would be an excellent springboard for a classroom project to research each letter’s subject.
