President's Day is another opportunity to educate your child about the history of our country in a fun and entertaining way. You can read President's Day by Anne Rockwell and Illustrated by Lizzy Rockwell. This is the perfect picture book to introduce information about both President George Washington and President Abraham Lincoln. It is a story of children celebrating President's Day while in the classroom.
In 2017 President's Day is celebrated on February 20th. President's Day is celebrated on the third Monday of February every year and is meant to honor all Presidents of the United States. Abraham Lincoln's birthday is on February 12th and George Washington's birthday is on February 22nd. Have fun making this Uncle Sam Mask and honoring Presidents of the United States.
