The Hidden Message of the Great Seal from The Hidden Message, LLC Review

{Disclaimer:  I received a FREE copy of this product through the HOMESCHOOL REVIEW CREW in exchange for my honest review.  I was not required to write a positive review nor was I compensated in any other way.}

Our New Book

A completed her high school government credit this year so when we were offered to review The Hidden Message of the Great Seal (How Foundational Truth From The Dawn of Liberty May Rescue A Republic In Peril) from The Hidden Message, LLC by Michael Kanis, we jumped on the opportunity.

Michael Kanis

This 256 page, historical research book explores the meaning behind the symbols of our national seal.  The symbols that were chosen and placed by the same men that wrote the Declaration of Independence.  A enjoys digging into history and I thought she would enjoy learning about our nation's seal.

A is about halfway through reading this book and she is really enjoying it.  I find her reading it often!  She likes that it gives background information of the lives of the people who made the seal, the early life sections.  This is her first opportunity to really learn about our seal and all its intricacies and she is finding it fascinating, especially exploring new thoughts and ideas.  I love that this book has her thinking.

 Learning about Francis Hopkinson

 Franklin's 13 Virtues.  This page is specifically made to be removed and used as a poster so that's what we did.

 A laminated it so it would last longer.

Franklin's 13 Virtues are Self-Restraint, Grace, Order, Self-Discipline, Stewardship, Hard Work, Truthfulness, Justice, Moderation, Cleanliness, Peacefulness, Morality, and Humility.  I love this poster reminder of virtues that I desire for all of my children to possess!

A pulled out a dollar bill to really look at it and study.

The layout of this book is in landscape and it lays well when open on a flat surface.  It is a bit harder for me to read and look at in my lap but A doesn't seem to have a problem with it.  We both love all the 250+ images scattered throughout the book.  If you have ever wondered or thought about our nation's seal, we would highly recommend this book.

You can purchase this book for $29.95 on Amazon, but the author has generously provided a coupon for 50% off the cover price when purchased from their web site.  Shipping is already free, simply use the discount code: HOMESCHOOL at checkout.  This offer is valid until May 30, 2020.

This is a good book to have. My children used to love reading history books when they were younger, but now, it is just my youngest son who kept the interest in learning about history. I am sure this book about hidden messages would be a good read for him.
