Item description for The Pledge of Allegiance by Barbra Clack...
For well over 100 years, each school day across America children have stood to say the Pledge of Allegiance, and this illustrated book explains the meaning of the Pledge through paraphrases and beautiful drawings. It guides the reader through each part of the Pledge with meaningful, illuminated texts designed to spark questions and to build an understanding of the principles put forth. The author has taken the simple idea of a daily recitation and given children a fresh way to think about what they are saying.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Pledge of Allegiance?
Terrific fun/instructional aid for children. May 21, 2006
Never has our country needed a book about our Pledge of Allegiance more than at this time. Barbra Clack's book comes to the rescue for both parents and teachers. Her book is a well-written, age-appropriate, and delightfully illustrated explanation of the precepts proposed in The Pledge.
Adults/teachers will benefit from this book also as they read it to their children. The back of the book contains additional information about our Pledge, the flag, and other symbols of American freedom that is quite enlightening, even to us old-timers!
My advice: parents, get a copy for your home. The book would also make a wonderful gift for friends or family with children. Teachers, speaking as someone with twenty-eight years of classroom experience, I would advise you to get a copy for your classroom and put one in your school's library. Share it with your peers; however, keep track of who has it, or you might not get it back! This one's a keeper!
Great book for elementary students! May 14, 2006
I am a 30 year veteran school teacher. I wish this book had been available when I taught school. I have never seen the pledge explained in a better way. Every classroom needs this book in their library!
