This book is absolutely adorable. Elizabeth, a little brown bear, loves helping her father raising and lowering their flag every day -- she is his 'Flag Keeper'. When he is due to go on a trip for 3 days, Elizabeth asks is she can raise and lower the flag herself in his absence. He says she should wait for him to return. Wanting to prove to her father that she is capable of raising the flag on her own, Elizabeth attempts to do so, and things go slightly wrong. After a couple of attempts, she is overjoyed when she manages to raise the flag correctly on her own. This book is fun to read, and the illustrations are delightful. I'm sure children will love the characters. The book is also educational as it teaches how and when a flag should be raised and lowered, as well as many other aspects of flag etiquette. This would make a great gift for a young child, and it's a great educational tool for older children, teaching them all about the American flag. There's an interesting list at the end of the book of dos and don'ts with regard to the flag. The author has also added discussion questions at the end of the book, and activity suggestions.

This is the perfect book for teaching children (and adults!) the proper way to handle a flag. Elizabeth is a little bear who wants the big task of raising the flag while her father is away. Along with Elizabeth, we learn the how and why of flag etiquette. But this story is about more than flat etiquette; it's also about responsibility and the love of a father and daughter. Juba's narrative does a brilliant job of teaching, while also entertaining. The colorful artwork adds to the fun. Combined this is a unique and beautifully put together story.
