Synopsis

The Pledge of Allegiance A Children's Illustrated Paraphrase by Barbara 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.
