“Finally, here’s a picture book that helps young children move beyond rote recitation of the Pledge to find meaning in its language. This is the book parents and teachers have been waiting for.” — Booklist(starred review)“I led a pigeon to the flag” . . . “and to the wee puppet” . . . “one nation, and a vegetable” . . . What was that again? Children in the United States have been reciting the Pledge of Allegiance since 1892 — and for about that long, they’ve found its big words confusing. Beloved children’s book author Bill Martin Jr., fellow literacy expert Michael Sampson, and Caldecott Honor-winning artist Chris Raschka give America’s children a hand and explain this patriotic poem once and for all. This paperback edition offers notes and suggested activities to help parents and teachers make this book even more interesting to and fun for children.
