This is well written and will serve youngsters well with a pleasant way to learn American history. The illustrations are wonderful in every way. It is the illustrations that will draw young readers into the historical text. It is a book that will be treasured by the owners long after they have read it. The writer, Betsy Maestro and her artist ,Guillio Maestro are to be commended for making this meticulously researched book available to all.

While many historical books of the time period center around 1776 and the Signing of the Declaration of Independence, this begins in1783 with the Treaty of Paris which was equally important, and then goes on to deal with the political and financial events that transpired. The role of John Adams, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson who were instrumental in our nation's history at that point is examined at length. The concerns of states rights and federal rights are examined as it certainly was an issue that continues to this day.

This is a time period often neglected a bit in the teaching of American History. This fills the gap and gives the reader a close up view of this important time period. .

For most Americans, there is a real void when it comes to American history between the Revolution and the Civil War. Maybe, there are some images of the Gold Rush and the Alamo that come to mind, but not much more. The critical period from 1783-1815 is even more obscure. This is unfortunate because this was the period where our most important institutions were created and our path forward to becomming a continental nation was determined.

Betsy and Guiliano Maestro's multi-volume "American Story" series does a beautiful job of recounting American history from its pre-history period right up to the dawn of Jacksonian Age. The writing is age appropriate and is rich in content. By writing a multi-volume history there is no need to compress too much history into one volume. Betsy Maestro has given American history the space it needs to be well told. Sadly, it seems that "A New Nation" is the last book in the series. This is a great series that will be enjoyed by both child and parent alike. Highly recommended!

On September 2, 1783, the American Revolution ended with the signing of the Treaty of Paris. The war was over, but for some the work of creating a nation was just beginning. There would be no king, no queen and no royalty to be found anywhere. The United States would be a democracy that "put people first." The Northwest Territory needed to be dealt with and was quickly divided into five states. Currency, one of the most pressing problems, had to be created and backed up with gold and silver. Without a valid currency, there would be serious consequences. The "first order of business was to set the country on the road to financial strength." There was indeed a lot to do in our fledgling country.

Many people were "worried that the rights and freedoms they had fought so hard to gain would be lost" if the government proved to be too powerful." Delegates gathered in Pennsylvania to hammer out the details. This process took several months of hard work and compromise. Our central government came from the Virginia Plan and would create a "stronger central government" in order to "unite the states so that they could speak and act as one country." We would have three branches, the executive, legislative and judicial. The Constitution was carefully drafted. The delegates worked hard and at least nine states had to approve the Constitution before it became law. In this book, you will get a marvelous look at the beginnings of a new nation, beginnings that were often rocky and difficult.

This history is set up in a storybook format and carries the reader from the Treaty of Paris into the next thirty-two years. The "story" is tight and very well done. The watercolors are numerous and illustrate salient points in this mini history. There are several small maps included. There is a lot of history packed into this book, but the overview is excellent and would provide a nice stepping stone into a school report on a topic that struck the readers fancy. In the back of the book is a chronology, additional "important events," an index and portraits of several early prominent Americans and their quotations. This is one of several in "The American Story Series," a series you might just want to consider adding to your classroom or library shelves!
