A lively patriotic book for kids packed with information about the U.S. flag code.
Elizabeth may be a little bear, but she treats the American flag with big respect. Elizabeth wakes up the American flag in the morning and puts it to bed at night. She acts as her father's "flag keeper," helping him with his daily tasks of raising the flag and retiring it for the evening. She soaks up the etiquette facts that Dad teaches her, including don't leave the flag out in the dark without a spotlight.
When Dad leaves for a business trip, it frustrates Elizabeth that the U.S. flag will be stuck in a boring garage. Every American flag she sees reminds her of her job as flag keeper, and Elizabeth grows determined to make her father proud.
