The John Hancock Club

My girls and I thoroughly enjoyed Louise Borden's fictitious classroom story, The John Hancock Club, illustrated by Adam Gustavson. Sean McFerrin and the other students in his third-grade class are learning cursive writing, and if they do well, their teacher will induct them into the John Hancock Club. This story definitely inspires curiosity about John Hancock, and the back cover of the book shows a copy of the Declaration of Independence with his defining signature.
