The Great Seal of the United States

by Norman Pearl
Illustrated by Matthew Skeens

How do Americans know that government papers are real? If you see an eagle holding a shield, and a pyramid with an eye above it, the papers are no fakes. Listen to Benjamin Franklin as he talks about the birth of the Great Seal in 1782 and why it's still so important to our country today.

School Library Journal - Carol S. Surges

"What sets these series titles apart from the many other books on the same topics is their simplicity. Each volume briefly explains the history and significance of its symbol. A guide, either a historical figure important in the development of the symbol or a fictional character involved in its day-to-day operation, introduces each icon. This personal tone and the clear language make these titles accessible to young listeners. Large, richly colored and highly stylized artwork flows across the covers and pages with figures that resemble plastic toys. Unfortunately, there are no photos of the actual sites, monuments, or symbols. Each volume includes a list of facts. Most collections already have more complete titles about these topics. Purchase if there's a need." - School Library Journal

Norman Pearl

Norman Pearl

Norman Pearl has written 10 children’s books. He writes on both science and social studies topics and can’t decide which he likes better. Norman lives in tropical Miami, Florida, with his wife and son. They have a small, white, fluffy dog named Max. Max thinks he is human, so the four of them go just about everywhere together. Norman usually writes his books under a palm tree while sipping lemonade. When he needs a break, he jumps in the pool for a swim. Usually, the rest of the family follows him in.
