I Pledge Allegiance
I Pledge Allegiance by Bill Martin, Jr.
Book DescriptionQ. Why isn't the American flag orange and pink? Q. Who in the world is Richard Stan? Q. How can children finally understand the Pledge of Allegiance? * See answers below. Children in the US have been reciting the Pledge of Allegiance since 1892, and for about that long, they've found its big words quite confusing. Now, beloved children's book author Bill Martin Jr (writer of Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?), along with fellow literacy expert Michael Sampson and award-winning illustrator Chris Raschka, gives children a long-awaited hand and parses this patriotic poem once and for all. A. Red stands for courage, white for purity and innocence, and blue for loyalty and fairness. A. A nice fellow, or a common mispronunciation of for which it stands. A. They can read this book!
