This is a great book. It has very interesting facts about our flag. Made me very proud to be an American. Great illustrations.

This beautiful book opens with Muñoz's first inspiring verse: Our flag is our country's symbol Of ideals that are meant to last It's a promise for our future A reminder of our past.... The accompanying illustration by Ralph Masiello shows a freshly whitewashed barn with an American flag gracing one side. A farmer's furrowed field, a vast blue sky and bucolic setting complete the scene. Each page that follows presents another verse, accompanying illustration, and a text box that imparts a piece of our flag's history to the reader. The book is stunning to look at, informative and heartwarming to read. It is a good introduction to youngsters about how our flag came to be, how it's changed over the years, and its meaning to us as citizens. Carolyn Rowe Hill
