    In conjunction with Henry's Freedom Box, you might try Sweet Clara and the Freedom Quilt, by Deborah Hopkinson.

    Last year, my class made their own coded quilt squares, which we put together to make a giant freedom quilt.

    I'd recommend "We the Kids" for your list. It is the preamble of the Constitution with illustrations that are kid friendly and make the words easier to understand. Another good one I pull out each year is "John, Paul, George, and Ben" I think that is by either Jon S. or Lane Smith. Not entirely factual, but it is great fun (and the facts vs. fictions are explained at the end.)
