Glenn Beck's latest book comes out today. Is it a screed against big government? An ode to George Washington? A jeremiad warning Americans their country is heading toward socialism? No, for this book, the pundit breaks from form to write a children's book called The Snow Angel. It follows up on his 2009 kids' book, The Christmas Sweater, which became a best-seller.
