Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The history of the flag, including the famed but not proven story of Betsy Ross and the first flag, entertains and informs readers. Herman tells about the variety of flags during the American Revolution and the various ways that the early stars and stripes were depicted. It wasn't until 1818 that Congress decided that the flag would have thirteen stripes to represent the original states and that the field of blue would contain a star for each state. The colorful illustrations are great and add humor and interest. Part of the "All Aboard Reading" series, this level 2 book would also work well in adult programs for those just learning English.

This is a great book for students in first through third grade. It gives factual information regarding the history of our American flag in an interesting and kid-oriented manner. The illustrations are appealing and cartoon-like, making reading fun and interesting for reluctant readers.
