Joseph Slate Craig Spearing. This book was pretty cool. I liked how it was about the Liberty Bell and how they saved it from being melted down. When I looked at the illustration of this book,it reminded me of custom checking at the airport. Strict check-ins and check-out from the guards. It was also cool to see that there were a ton of bells saved during the time. Not many child history books so i thought it was cool to read.

The Liberty Bell bears a timeless message: "Proclaim Liberty Throughout All the Land Unto All the Inhabitants thereof". Go beyond the iconic crack to learn how this State House bell was transformed into an extraordinary symbol. Abolitionists, women's suffrage advocates and Civil Rights leaders took inspiration from the inscription on this bell. That bell cracked on the first test ring. Local metalworkers John Pass and John Stow melted down that bell and cast a new one right here in Philadelphia. It's this bell that would ring to call lawmakers to their meetings and the townspeople together to hear the reading of the news.

A vibrantly illustrated picture book provides an invaluable lesson in Colonial America's spirit and ingenuity when a patriotic farmer helps hide the Liberty Bell before British soldiers come to claim it.
