The Flag Keeper is designed to teach children about U.S. flag etiquette through an educational fiction story and simple illustrations geared toward young readers.

Elizabeth wakes up the American flag in the morning and puts it to bed at night.

She soaks up the etiquette facts that Dad teaches her, including don't leave the flag out in the dark without a spotlight.
