First Liberty would like to share these two, beautifully illustrated children’s books as a free gift to all people of faith. These books are perfect for teaching your kids and grandkids how the Founding Fathers valued the freedom of all Americans to publicly exercise their faith.

Both books are perfect for parents and grandparents who want to pass on their love for religious liberty that God has blessed us with in America. These books also instill a strong passion to fiercely protect our precious freedoms—or they could quickly erode away.
