The red, white and blue of the American flag can be seen flying above government buildings, on homes, at sporting events and even from the tops of skyscrapers. But who made the first banner that represented the United States (It wasn't Betsy Ross) and why is Old Glory such an important symbol to the citizens of the U.S.?

In 30 pages, the author and illustrator provide several history lessons in rhyming text and colorful images. Each two-page spread is dedicated to a different aspect of the American flag from who may have stitched the first flag to when the Pledge of Allegiance was first recited by school children to what the flag represents to the diverse citizenship of the United States.

The educational aspect of this book is unlimited whether it inspires children to dig deeper into American history or to just make their own paper flags and march around the back yard singing "Yankee Doodle Dandy." It's one of those books children will enjoy reading again and again.
