I have a daughter who is 7, and I want to give her an even picture of American History.

I don't want it to be whitewashed patriotism, but I also don't want her to have a complete anti-American view either. Mostly I want her to be aware of the great flaws and accomplishments that have made up America. Bonus points if the books explain huge world concepts like imperialism, labor movements, communism, sweat shops, slavery in realistic but simple terms.
Anyone know of books appropriate for kids that can be balanced like this?
