A Buss Cover2.2FINAL

A Buss from Lafayette can be enjoyed read aloud in a classroom, read in small groups, and, of course, read individually. The story presents a lot of information about:   1)  the American Revolution,   2)  the key role General Lafayette played in achieving independence,      3)  our nation’s “rock star” reception of the aging hero during his Farewell Tour of 1824-5, and,  4)  American life in the early 19th century.


Many questions and activities regarding these subjects are presented in the guide to use with the book. Links are included that can access a wealth of additional information to further understanding and to bring the text alive with photos, discussions, and videos

P.S. A much longer curriculum guide is in the works and will be available for purchase online.
