Editorial Reviews


The Flag Keeper:
I would encourage all true patriots with children to purchase a copy to start their "little patriots" off on the right foot.
-- Steve Van Buskirk, Director of Programs, VFW National Headquarters

A wonderful story about Elizabeth, who through life's day-to-day adventures learns how to care for and display the flag. An excellent read!
-- Mike Buss, Deputy Director, Americanism, American Legion National Headquarters

Reading The Flag Keeper is a terrific way for parents and kids to spend time together and enhance their celebration of the Fourth of July. It helps parents to keep their children reading and learning in the summer months, and moms and dads will even learn something themselves. The book can also be pulled out at other times of year, such as Columbus Day, Veterans Day, and Flag Day. 
-- Staten Island Family

Victoria Rose and the Big Bad Noise:
My daughter seemed to like the drawings. The illustrations really caught her eye and captured her attention-she pointed out each of them use the color yellow. I loved the idea of the book-the idea of connecting the scary sounds with sounds that the child finds safe and happy.
-- Yogi Mommy Writes it Down

Audiobook Review:
A musical introduction played on a toy piano sets the tone for these three children's stories about flags, big noises, and creativity. Narrator Bill Russell is especially articulate, slowing his pace when explaining flag terminology in the story about Elizabeth, who decides to take over flag duties in her father's absence.

From the Author

Dear Parents, I normally write novels for adults and teens, however, my family inspired me to try my hand at writing a few picture books. My father, who has always enjoyed drawing pictures as a hobby, illustrated my stories as Christmas gifts for the children in our lives. He used his favorite technique, colored pencil, in a style that gives the effect of a completed coloring book. Much to my surprise, the illustrations depicted teddy bears and they reminded me of the simple drawings in the bear books by Frank Asch. I had envisioned my characters as humans, but I liked his idea much better. All of the children who received the handmade books loved the stories and the simple but vivid illustrations of teddy bears so much that I decided to publish them in e-book format. This way, my adult readers could have an inexpensive way to share the stories with their children. I hope your family enjoys the books as much as my family enjoyed creating them. Stacy Juba

This is such a cute collection of stories. Being a fan of Stacy Juba's adult books, I had already read the first two children's books she wrote The Flag Keeper and Victoria Rose and the Big Bad Noise
Both are charming and educational. They are included in this bundle of 3 books. Here are the reviews I wrote for them:

The Flag Keeper:
This book is absolutely adorable.
Elizabeth, a little brown bear, loves helping her father raising and lowering their flag every day -- she is his 'Flag Keeper'. When he is due to go on a trip for 3 days, Elizabeth asks is she can raise and lower the flag herself in his absence. He says she should wait for him to return. Wanting to prove to her father that she is capable of raising the flag on her own, Elizabeth attempts to do so, and things go slightly wrong. After a couple of attempts, she is overjoyed when she manages to raise the flag correctly on her own.
This book is fun to read, and the illustrations are delightful. I'm sure children will love the characters. The book is also educational as it teaches how and when a flag should be raised and lowered, as well as many other aspects of flag etiquette. This would make a great gift for a young child, and it's a great educational tool for older children, teaching them all about the American flag.
There's an interesting list at the end of the book of dos and don'ts with regard to the flag. The author has also added discussion questions at the end of the book, and activity suggestions.

Three wonderful stories written for children to learn about flag etiquette, scary noises, and imagination. All three stories are written in such a way to help children understand what the book is trying to explain. Learn how to properly care for the American flag. Understand that not all noises are bad. Use your imagination to create beautiful shoes. I loved that the illustrations are done by the author's father and that he used color pencils to draw them! In today's high tech, digital, computerized world, it's nice to see something so simply drawn by hand for everyone to enjoy. I recommend this bundle to everyone out there who want to teach their children to respect the flag, find the music in noises, and use their imaginations to create anything.

These 3 books with their cute teddy bear characters were a fun read. In "The Flag Keeper" Elizabeth taught myself and both of my boys (age 6 and 7) about flag etiquette (wow, there was a lot I didn't know about flags!). In "Victoria Rose and the Big Bad Noise", Victoria taught us that not all noise is scary and actually has a purpose and can be fun. In "Sticker Shoes" Jenny uses her imagination and creativity to create something new. All three books were entertaining and full of easy to understand life lessons for kids.

This kindle bundle combines three short stories featuring a young bear and her family. In the first story, Elizabeth takes her job as assistant flag keeper very seriously. Every day, she helps her dad raise and lower it on the family flagpole outside her house. But when dad goes on a business trip, Elizabeth decides she is old enough to take on the responsibility herself. How does that work out? Will Elizabeth be able to handle things and what lessons will she learn about vexillology. (the science of studying the flag)

In the second story Victoria Rose has a vivid imagination concerning the noises she hears in her home. The vacuum cleaner becomes a lion, a lawnmower turns into a spaceship, and a blender becomes a growling bear. One day she turns on a CD player and discovers that some machines do make pleasant noises. Maybe she can find a way to cope.

Jenny is the protagonist in the third story. Like many children this bear loves stickers and glitter. She decides to make sticker shoes, but soon discovers that can be a problem. Is there a way to solve her problem and still enjoy playing with her stickers?

The first story features a bonus section on how to properly treat and care for an American flag, which is certainly useful for an American audience. The other two stories use a friendly bear character to teach children lessons of responsibility in and around the house. This three book combination is perfect for children ages three to six. The simple illustrations are soft, charming and appealing .Recommended for parents and teachers of preschoolers and primary school age children.

liked the simple stories and loved the idea of father Larry Drumtra did the illstrations for his daughters books. That they gave to grandchildren.
The first book Flag Keeper I learned something new and was reminded of things I had forgotten about. We can all use reminders of how important the flag is.
Sticker shoes made me smile and remember how much kids like stickers no matter the ages.
I will be glad to keep these stories on my ereader to share with the little ones in my life. I was given this ebook to read in exchange of honest review from Librarything.
