Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
When I went to school, we all learned that Betsy Ross made the first American flag. Now in this early reader, kids learn that it may only be a legend and that no one knows who really made the first flag with its thirteen stripes and thirteen gold stars. What is interesting is Betsy Ross, a formidable woman who married three times, had seven children, and ran her own business. She was truly remarkable for her time. There is a short time line that runs along the bottom of the pages showing some of the milestones in Betsy's life. She also lived to the really ripe old age of eighty-four, which in the early days of our country was also quite a feat. The book is illustrated with period illustrations and photographs that show Betsy's shop and her gravestone. An interesting book for those who have just started reading on their own. It is part of the "First Biographies" series.
