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 books shows how Americans around the United States celebrate the American flag and the symbolism we show. The pictures look like a child is drawing the pictures and they are on an adventure with the flag. One of the picture shows a parade celebration on the flags national day which is June 14th. Another picture shows some children and adults singing the national anthem while some get emotional. The narrator talks about where we put the American and the colors of the flag.

F is for Flag is about the symbolism behind the US flag we see around us. It talks about how we see the flag in different places and that it can mean many things like unity, welcome, or serve as reminders for good and bad times. This book would be great for students to read by themselves because it is an easy read with not many words and pages, as well as the pictures going along with the words. This book would be perfect as a take home reader for students to practice their reading at home.

This book is perfect to read in a classroom during social studies! It's very informative about the American flag! How it represents everyone in the America and how there are many places people hang the flag! The illustrations are pretty neat! Students could learn a lot from this book.

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.

This a cute elementary book about the Flag. I read it to 2nd graders while I was doing a unit on citizenship. The book has interesting facts about the flag, is educational, and easy to follow. I would use it anywhere from Kindergarten to third grade.

Geared toward a younger audience, but a good way to teach why the flag is important to our country, why we show it respect, and why it is a symbol of patriotism.
