Product Details


“Using cotton fabric, embroidery thread, dye, paint, and linoleum-block prints, Lloyd captures the period, hard work, and ingenuity of this favorite colonial figure. Close-ups of each step of the process, coupled with images of the smiling woman in her white cap, long pink dress with white collar and apron, and black lace shoes, scissors snipping by candlelight, re-create the experience for the youngest readers. When youngsters read the final pages, they will feel the same pride in our flag as its creator must have felt.”—School Library Journal

“A historical fable, told in very few words, prettily illustrated and rather wonderful in its elegant brevity . . . Lloyd has used fabric appliqué sewn and fused, stamping and stitching to make the illustrations, lovely in their simple graphic shapes and clean design.”—Kirkus Reviews

“The text is geared to the youngest audience, but the appeal of the visual details in Lloyd’s appliqued illustrations knows no age limit.”—The Horn Book Guide
