Reviews - What do customers think about Great American Stuff: A Celebration of People, Places, and Products That Make Us Happy to Live in America?

entertaining,educational and humorous  Aug 10, 1998
I use this book with most of my ESL (ENGLISH AS SECOND LANGUAGE) students. They are fascinated by its contents -Monuments,inventors,natural resources,food, music, movies, cities - you name it - it's right here in this delightful book. Each chapter prepares you for the next so there is great continuity. A perfect text - I give it a 10!
 
a delightfully upbeat view of things that make America great  Dec 23, 1997
It wanders all about the map of America, citing the little things and the big things that make it what it is. Somehwat of a hodge-podge, covering everything from wild blueberries to the Brooklyn Bridge, it gives new meaning to that overused word, "eclectic", but the result is delightfully upbeat. A good read that informs and uplifts and kind of makes you proud of being an American.
