Reviewed with Marc Tyler Nobleman's The Pledge of Allegiance.
K-Gr. 2. Books in the American Symbols series introduce children to a variety of topics relating to U.S. history and patriotism. Lib erty Bell is a simple history of the icon, beginning with its arrival from England in 1752. Yanuck explains how it cracked, the attempts to repair it, and how it is maintained today. In The Pledge of Allegiance, Nobleman describes Francis Bellamy's creation of the loyalty oath in 1892 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Columbus' voyage and how it has changed, including its addition to the U.S. Flag Code and traditional recitation in schools across the country. Generously illustrated, mostly in color, with photographs, charts, and maps, the texts are brief and to the point; print size is large, and each chapter is confined to a double-page spread. There is no mention of current issues (court rulings on allowing students not to say the pledge), but the books will still serve as useful introductions for students new to the topics. "Fast Facts" begin each book; a time line, a game, a glossary, and a bibliography (including a publisher's Web page with related sites) conclude. Kay Weisman
