Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
With a bright, conversational tone, Lewison takes readers through the many aspects of the American Flag—where it is displayed, what it stands for, its origins, its nicknames, and how we respect it. The illustrations are colorful and accessible, and a sense of patriotism and Americana are present throughout. Multiple cultures are shown while the text and pictures both emphasize that we are one big family. This is a great way to introduce young readers to our flag and all the meaning that stands behind it. The book states that Betsy Ross may not have been the one who made the first flag, scoring several points for historical accuracy. 2002, Grosset & Dunlap,
