Elizabeth wakes up the American flag in the morning and puts it to bed at night. She acts as her fathers flag keeper, helping him with his daily tasks of raising the flag and retiring it for the evening. She soaks up the etiquette facts that Dad teaches her, including dont leave the flag out in the dark without a spotlight. When Dad leaves for a business trip, it frustrates Elizabeth that their flag will be stuck in a boring garage. Every flag she sees reminds her of her job as flag keeper, and Elizabeth grows determined to make her father proud. This patriotic book is designed to teach children about U.S. flag etiquette through an educational fiction story. It includes discussion questions, flag facts, and an activity. The Flag Keeper is ideal for military families, Girl Scout and Boy Scout troops, classroom and library use, and for anyone who wishes to teach a special child about American flag etiquette. It is a perfect complement to patriotic holidays such as Flag Day and the Fourth of July.Endorsements:“In my capacity with the Veterans of Foreign Wars, I see dozens of patriotic publications each year. The Flag Keeper is unique in its approach to younger children. While it deals with important and somewhat detailed information, it does so in a clear and simple way that children can understand and even personalize. Complex issues such as patriotism, personal responsibility, honor and faithfulness are presented easily, graphically and with a sweetness and gentleness that belies the weight of these issues. I would encourage all true patriots with children to purchase a copy to start their little patriots off on the right foot.” Steve Van Buskirk, Director of Programs, VFW National Headquarters.“A wonderful story about Elizabeth, who through lifes day-to-day adventures learns how to care for and display the flag. An excellent read! Mike Buss, Deputy Director, Americanism, American Legion National Headquarters.Reviews:The Flag Keeper is a flat-spined softcover book designed to teach young children about the American flag. Simple color illustrations follow the bear girl Elizabeth, as she learns how to treat a flag with proper respect, and why one should never fly it upside down except in emergency (an upside-down flag is a plea for immediate help from the police or anyone else available!) A handful of flag facts and discussion questions such as How would you describe flag etiquette to a friend? round out this excellent educational book filled with information all American children should know.
