And the theme for July's book is...

American History! (In honor of the Fourth of July)

Nominations should include either a person from American history as part of the plot, an event from American history as part of the plot, or a word in the title relating to American history. (Ask me about other ways to incorporate the theme.)

It turns out I haven't read, like, any books on American history, but here are a few anyway.

I haven't read this, but I have heard of it: Johnny Tremain

Oh, I read this one in fifth grade, and it would be fun to reread it: The Witch of Blackbird Pond

Oh, gosh, I really should have read this one by now, but I haven't: Little Women

I remember loving The Witch of Blackbird Pond! I'd love to re-read that one! I've never heard of the Johnny one. I'll have to check it out. And Little Women is a classic. I read it when I was a freshman in high school for fun.

I'll get on tomorrow and see if I can come up with some nominations.

Nah, we've read children's books before. The only books that aren't allowed are content-heavy.
