    Example of a good concept not well executed.

    This book takes a close look at the Pledge of Allegiance, word by word, and provides readers with the meaning of the words used as well as some background information and historical context. That support is helpful in understanding this pledge of loyalty, which is often confusing to young children (e.g. ¿I led a pigeon to the flag¿¿). The difficulty here, though, is that the text is broken into such small pieces (on one page, ¿of¿ appears) that it becomes disjointed and loses context. The illustrations of ink and torn paper are crude and do little to add insight to the text. This book is an example of a good concept not well executed.

    I pledge allegiance, not "I pledge all giants"

    This new book by Martin and Sampson is a simply stated book with interpretations as to the meanings of the "important" words in the pledge we recite almost without thinking. It brings a new understanding of the pledge to younger readers and for those of us that know it is not "I pledge all giants" it can increase one's respect for the pledge. The illustrations by Raschka are also simple, yet can prompt conversation, though they do not overpower the message. This is a book to educate and to be enjoyed by the young and old.
