Take a journey with this little star... “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. 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 that made us free.
This educational and inspirational book makes it fun for
children and adults to learn the history of our nation’s flag. The little star
does make 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 written for teachers and parents to easily make the story into a small play
for children to interact and learn.
