Kid’s Books for Presidents’ Day

While many kids are happy to be off school for Presidents’ Day, they may not understand why they get to sleep in.

The third Monday in February is an American holiday known as Presidents’ Day.  It was originally established (1885) as a celebration of George Washington’s birthday. 

Abraham Lincoln’s birthday came shortly after and in order to make the holidays more uniform, it was decided that instead of celebrating both, these celebrations would be combined into one national holiday, Presidents’ Day.  

To help you share the background of the holiday with your kids, grab one (or more) of these great books!

It would just be a 3 step process;

I would just need a favor of backlink in return for the free, high-quality article. Please let me know if we shall start with the first step?

Looking forward to your response.
