Stars and Stripes : The Story of the American Flag by
Sarah L. Thomson, Bob Dacey (Illustrator), Debra Bandelin
Schools, parades, post offices, and the moon. These are just some of
the places we see the American flag.
Fifty stars stand for the states that make up this country. Thirteen
stripes remind us of the colonies that fought for their freedom. But
the flag has not always looked the way it does today. Its history is
as colored and rich as our country's past. Yet despite the ways the flag
has changed in the past two hundred years, the pride, unity, and strength
it inspires have never faltered.
STARS AND STRIPES: The Story of the American Flag invites readers to
travel back in time and witness firsthand how our flag came to be.
