This informational picture book was very successful in communicating the importance of our nation's flag. It was not the most interesting or exciting book ever, but it was educationally valuable. You could use it in the classroom to introduce a lesson on national symbols. You could also read it on any American-themed holidays happening during the school year. If you taught younger students, you could read it around the same time they are trying to remember the pledge of allegiance.

This book was written for a very young audience as a piece of nonfiction about flags. It didn't get bogged down in too many details, but it kept its focus throughout. It's just the right length for a read aloud and it is a very effective illustration of the meaning and purpose of the American flag.
