Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Dell explores the origins and meanings of the Pledge of Allegiance in this book from the "Let's See" series. After defining "salute" and "pledge" in the first chapter, the Pledge of Allegiance is printed with difficult words in bold face type. Next, Dell explains who wrote the Pledge, when, and why they chose to do so. The history of flag-flying at schools is also described. Next, the proclamation issued by President Harrison is explained, as well as changes the Pledge has undergone over the years. An explanation of the correct way to say the pledge is also included. A glossary, a "Did You Know?" section, and a list of references round out this excellent source on the history of the Pledge. Numerous photographs and reproductions of paintings add visual interest for the younger child. 2004, Compass Point, Ages 7 up.
