Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“[This book] packs a great deal of information into its 200 pages, and the color illustrations are well done. . . . [It] should prove useful to anyone teaching American histoy or to those interested in their own state’s history and symbols. Howe is an educator, and this is evident in the way the book presents its message.”—Military Collector & Historian “[B]eautifully put together. . . . [T]he illustrations are gorgeous, the formatting is as attractive as I’ve seen in recent years, and the stats . . . are accurate.”—Pine Bluff Commercial “How combines education with entertainment. Readers will not only look at their own state flag with renewed interest but those of the states they have visited.”—Enchantment, a monthly publication in Santa Fe, New Mexico “This book includes quick tidbits and facts that makes the history of the nation’s flags interesting. Your children can use this as a reference book for school projects, but we bet they will also be tempted just to flip through the book.”—Atlanta Parent “The concept is a good one. Nice work for the general reader.”—Statesman Journal
