I'm Your Flag So Please Treat Me Right!

By Julia Cook, Illustrated by Michelle Hazelwood Hyde

(Grades K & Up) Although many kids say the pledge of allegiance at the beginning of the day, they sometimes don’t show a lot of sincerity while doing it because they don’t fully understand what the flag means to America. I’m Your Flag so Please Treat Me Right! is a story told by the American flag. It explains through the eyes of our flag what the red, white and blue stand for, and what the flag means to all Americans.

I stand for freedom when I wave in the air, so proud of my stars and stripes. Whenever you see me, please show that you care. I’m your flag so please treat me right! I’m lucky to have you and you’re lucky to have me. The things that I stand for are why you are free. Be proud when you see my red, white and blue. When I wave in the air…I’m waving for YOU! I didn't always look like this. When I was younger, I looked different.

This delightful, historical and colorful story will help people of all ages better understand the value of our beautiful flag. Softcover, 32 pages.
