about

This patriotic book is designed to teach children about U.S. flag etiquette through an educational fiction story and simple illustrations geared toward young readers. It also includes discussion questions, flag facts, and an activity. 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 their flag will be stuck in a boring garage. Every flag she sees reminds her of her job as flag keeper. Elizabeth grows determined to make her father proud by proving she can raise the flag herself and follow all the rules of flag etiquette.

The simple and gentle colored pencil illustrations are especially vibrant on color e-readers. The Flag Keeper is ideal for military families, Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops, clazzroom and library use, and for anyone who wishes to teach a special child about American flag etiquette. It is a perfect complement to patriotic holidays such as Flag Day and the Fourth of July.

Reviews:

I would encourage all true patriots with children to purchase a copy to start their "little patriots" off on the right foot. Steve Van Buskirk, Director of Programs, VFW National Headquarters

A wonderful story about Elizabeth, who through life's day-to-day adventures learns how to care for and display the flag. An excellent read!  Mike Buss, Deputy Director, Americanism, American Legion National Headquarters

Reading The Flag Keeper is a terrific way for parents and kids to spend time together and enhance their celebration of the Fourth of July. It helps parents to keep their children reading and learning in the summer months, and moms and dads will even learn something themselves. The book can also be pulled out at other times of year, such as Columbus Day, Veterans Day, and Flag Day.  Staten Island Family
