“I’m a little star, just a little star. I wish and I pray, to be a star on our nation’s flag someday!”
Along the way he teaches children the true meaning of the American flag and what it stands for, asking questions such as. “Why does the flag have 50 stars? Why does the flag have 13 stripes? Why is the flag red, white and blue?” Children learn to stand in honor of our flag, read the Pledge of Allegiance and sing the National Anthem to our heroes who have made us free.
This award winning educational and inspirational book makes it not only interesting but fun for children and adults to learn the history of our nation’s flag. In the end the little star makes it to the nation’s flag, teaching children to aim high and never sway so they can be like the star and reach their goals.
Each patriotic page is beautifully illustrated in full color and is written for teachers and parents to easily make the story into a small play for children to interact and learn together.
