Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sheilah Egan
Simple questions reveal basic facts about the American flag. "What is this?" is the question on the first page showing a young boy holding a U.S. flag. The answer in bold type is "The American Flag!" The colors of the flag are demonstrated with a blue balloon, red cherries, and a white (it looks bluish-gray to my eyes) coffee cup. While the photographs are bright and straightforward, I think that they are rather uninspired. The question that prompts the reader to search for the stars on the flag is depicted by three children holding up a fairly large American flag (their eyes just peek over the top); but the stars are immediately visible—no "searching" necessary. Intended for the very youngest child, this board book could serve as a beginning reader's introduction to the parts of the flag. The second to last photograph shows a school class saying the Pledge of Allegiance but the text simply says " �it stands for our whole country, the United States of America." This title would not be a first purchase, but it would be a useful addition to pre-school and primary libraries where more titles about the flag are needed. This title is part of the "Smithsonian" series.
