In what ways do you consider yourself to be a Grateful American? That’s the question that author and publisher David Bruce Smith is investigating in the Grateful American™ Foundation.
“Our mission is to make it fun to learn about American history,” says Smith, who borrowed the idea for the Grateful American™ Foundation from his father, developer and philanthropist Robert H. Smith. “My father always referred to himself as a Grateful American. He realized that the community and this country have been good to our family, and he wanted to give back. This Foundation is my way of doing the same.”
An interactive, multimedia educational series designed to restore enthusiasm in American history for kids — and adults, too.
David Bruce Smith’s Grateful American™ Foundation is proud to launch Grateful American™ Kids, dedicated to restoring enthusiasm in American history for children of all ages.
The Grateful American Book Prize is the only award for excellence in writing, storytelling and illustration for children’s historical non-fiction and fiction focused on the events and personalities that have shaped the United States since the country’s founding.
The Grateful American Foundation was founded in 2014 to restore enthusiasm about American history for kids — and adults – via videos and podcasts. Abigail & John is the inaugural book in the series, which will focus on presidential and historical marriages that influenced the nation.
