About the Author:

GEORGE M. COHAN (1878-1942) grew up on the road in a vaudeville family. After moving to New York in his teens, he and his musicals became hits on Broadway. You're a Grand Old Flag was the first song in a musical to sell over one million copies of sheet music.

WARREN KIMBLE is one of America's most successful folk artists. Originally an elementary art teacher in New Jersey, he was drawn to the serenity of Vermont, where he lives and works today. His favorite medium is paint on distressed wood―antique doors, breadboards, or tabletops that he and his wife travel widely to find. He and his wife, Lorraine, have 3 children and many grandchildren.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 4—It is difficult to think of a more patriotic combination than Cohan's lyrics and Rockwell's artwork, and this picture book introduces both to a new generation of children. In a short but interesting introduction, John Rockwell discusses his grandfather's long career and some of the common themes found in his pictures. This is followed by a series of spreads, each pairing a few lines from the famous song with a good-quality, full-color reproduction of a familiar Norman Rockwell illustration. The lyrics are then repeated, with a different painting for each phrase. The choice of images is thoughtful, in some places suggesting new and occasionally humorous meanings for the words. The text is artistically typeset in a large font reminiscent of printing during the mid-1900s. Matching borders tie the book together in a cohesive visual whole. Illustration credits are appended, with thumbnails of each picture and captions stating when and where it first appeared. This volume has great appeal for Rockwell's fans, but readers must be sensitive to the fact that it portrays an idealized, predominately white view of America. You're a Grand Old Flag (Walker, 2007), with Warren Kimble's attractive folk art, is a good alternative.—Donna Cardon, Provo City Library, UT
