The prize is a spectacular book titled:

The Declaration of Independence,
A Museum in a Book"

You have to see this beautiful volume to appreciate it. From Deborah Hopkinson, reviewer for "Children's BookPage":

". . . In addition to its lavish illustrations, the book includes replicas of actual diaries, private journals and artifacts related to the drama of independence. Reach into a pocket on page five, for instance, and you can pull out a walking map of Philadelphia in 1756. A replica of a list of patriots killed and wounded at Concord peeks out from behind a period illustration of the famous battle. And, of course, there's also a full-size replica of the Declaration itself.
This informative, attractive book [is] a unique, fascinating and interactive resource that truly makes American history come alive."
