Check out the "You wouldn't want to be a ...." series. They are awesome...funny, colorful, short text. I usually order a half class set from the library and have kids read along. The illustrations are great!

Any Patricia Polacco book on heritage is great but Pink and Say is one of the best. Its a civil war one.
Theres a black and white illustrated Gettysburg Address book thats awesome and We the Kids.
