Happy Independence Day! What a wonderful day to celebrate and to give thanks for living in a country that celebrates freedom. And how appropriate to review the book of The Story of The Pledge of Allegiance.
This is a small book (less than 50 pages) but it is packed with good information. It is appropriate for upper elementary and middle school aged children but it would be a good review for anyone. The author provides a brief background about the events that led the United States Government to write a pledge to its flag. This book contains an excellent overview of the people, events, and circumstances that impacted our nation. Tiner also discusses what the words and phrases in the pledge actually mean. There are questions at the end of the book as well as a list of some activities you can do to extend your learning.
Overall, this is a great resource to supplement your study of American History. A quick and easy read with review questions ready! What more could you ask for?
I was provided a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own!
