April Prince is a former editor at Morrow and HarperCollins. This is her first children's book.
Joan Paley is a graphic designer and has illustrated several well-received picture books, including the award-winning Little White Duck. She studied at the Massachusetts College of Art and the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine.
PreSchool-Grade 2–This book presents the meaning of the flag in brief, rhyming text that readers will relate to: "I show her that I'm faithful/Before my school day starts;/I pledge allegiance to the flag/With my hand upon my heart." The cut-paper collage illustrations are bright and bold. Familiar places such as a ballpark, school, and cemetery are pictured, and most of the figures shown holding the flag are children, making the book especially appealing to youngsters. A brief history of the flag is included. Pair this excellent resource with Bill Martin, Jr. and Michael Sampson's I Pledge Allegiance (Candlewick, 2002) for a ready-made history lesson. Pam Muñoz Ryan's The Flag We Love (Charlesbridge, 1996) can be used when more detailed information is needed.–Sheilah Kosco, Rapides Parish Library, Alexandria, LA
