Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

GR 1–3—Libby and her Great Aunt Lobo are learning the Pledge of Allegiance at the same time—but for different reasons. Lobo is practicing it in order to become a citizen of the united states. She is proud of her Mexican heritage but is also grateful to be in America. In school, Libby has been chosen to lead her class in saying the pledge. Lobo and Libby decide to practice together at home and talk about what it means to both of them. The pencil and digitally painted illustrations have a watercolor softness that shows the deep warmth and closeness between niece and aunt. The characters are endearing, rendered primarily in shades of blue. The story will help young children become more thoughtful about this common daily recitation. Sprinkled with Spanish words, this gentle book explores what it means to be an American from the perspective of both a child and new citizen.—Diane McCabe, John Muir Elementary, Santa Monica, CA --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Booklist

“On Friday, Mom and I will go with . . . great-aunt Lobo to a special place . . . where she will say the Pledge of Allegiance and . . . become a citizen of the United States,” exclaims Libby, the young narrator of this family story. Libby vows to practice saying the pledge with Lobo in the week leading up to the ceremony, providing an easy opportunity for the authors to integrate both lines of the pledge and discussions of its meaning into the text. Likewise, the inclusion of Spanish text not only introduces readers to potentially new vocabulary words but it also helps them understand the importance of Lobo’s Mexican heritage as well as her American citizenship. Barton’s warm, mixed-media illustrations echo the warmth in Lobo’s words: “This country is like one big family . . . that works together to take care of the people who need help.” An authors’ note adds more personal connections as well as a few lines of historical background about the pledge. Preschool-Grade 2. --Annie Miller --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Format: Hardcover
A must have! This is a book that explains the importance of The Pledge of Allegiance, and what it means, so that young children can understand it. It also tells the story about why Young Libby's great aunt immigrated to the United States from Mexico, and why it was important for her to become a US citizen. Never forgetting her heritage, her new home has provided her the freedoms, education and a better way of life that her parents wanted her to have.

This is a book I'd highly recommend picking up to have in your home, classroom, and libraries. It's an educational read, a great story, and the illustrations are fabulous. This is a must have for all ages.

This lovely book was so inspiring; even at a advanced age Tia Lobo is so proud of her birth country as well as her new country. The little girl, Lobita is so proud also of her reciting before the class as well as with her loved Tia Lobo.

Format: Hardcover
Libby's aunt, Lobo, came from Mexico as a young girl and now, many years later, is becoming an American citizen. At the end of the week, Lobo will say the pledge of allegiance with the other new citizens and Libby will lead her class in saying the pledge. On the days leading up to Libby & Lobo's big day, they practice the pledge together and Lobo tells Libby why it's important to her to become a citizen: "When I was a young girl, my father wanted a safer place for us to grow up, and we came to the United States. The American flag - red, white, and blue - wrapped itself around me to protect me." I PLEDGE ALLEGIANCE is a touching, beautiful story about the Pledge of Allegiance and being proud to be an American citizen.
