Proud, industrious, creative, generous, and patriotic—that’s the spirit of America!

In this collection of 101 stories about the spirit of America and what makes our country great, you’ll read about:
  • America’s heroes—service members, military families, veterans, and first responders
  • 9/11 fifteen years later—the families, the rescuers, the air traffic controllers who were on duty, the spirit of a united nation in the days that followed
  • Our vast and beautiful land—from beaches to mountains, from tropics to desert
  • Traditions—from baseball to apple pie to parades to our national parks
  • American ingenuity, from the space program to made-in-America to our can-do attitude
  • Our generosity and compassion— we are a nation of helping hands
  • Our diversity and our proud new citizens
  • The red, white, and blue—our flag and what it means to us
