About the Book

1947_Freedom_Train_Cover_400x268This is a fictional story about a historical event that will help remind children of the important documents that protect the freedom of Americans. The real-life 1947 Freedom Train carried the nation’s vital historical documents around the country to show them to Americans of all ages. The Freedom Train’s journey helped viewers see the laws that have worked to protect freedom for all Americans since the founding of the country. Learning about the 1947 Freedom Train will also help today’s children see the importance of honoring the men and women who have secured the country’s freedoms, allowing its citizens to continue to live at peace.

Children will be inspired and motivated to impact the world themselves. As Grandpa Charles says in telling Justin, Libby, Jaden, and Sonia about the 1947 Freedom Train, “New beginnings all start from caring ideas.”
