“The illustrations in my book paint in a childlike way, a picture of this country in colorful snapshots that teach geography, pinpoints the cities that they soon will know and visit, and show on several pages the servicemen and women that we honor,” Greenwood added.
As a father, Greenwood recalls reading to his own children when they were very small — watching as they fervidly flipped through the pages and became captivated by all of the vivid photos and drawings.
“Reading to my own children when they were young was a way for my wife and I to hold them close and bond with them while teaching them all they needed to know about life,” said Greenwood. “It’s my sincere hope that this book will become an educational tool for all parents, grandparents, and even teachers at schools throughout the U.S. to help teach the lessons of patriotism at an early age.”
