Editorial Reviews

Review

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

From the Author

Dear Parents,
 
I normally write novels for adults and teens, however, my children 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 affordable way to share the stories with their children. I hope your family enjoys the books as much as my family enjoyed creating them.

Format: Paperback
I thought this book was wonderfully written to help children understand the American flag etiquette. Simple wording with those "big" words explained makes it easy for a young child to understand what the book is saying. There were also a few flag facts in there that I didn't know. The drawings are unique and tie into the story wonderfully. I love that the illustrator is the father of the author. How often does that happen in children's books? It's amazing that they were able to collaborate together to create this book. I definitely recommend this book to everyone out there who wants to teach their child/grandchild/etc about the American flag and how to properly display, store, and retire a flag.

Reading this book to our children is a great way to teach them proper care and respect for our beloved American flag. I read this to my toddler, and although she doesn't quite understand it yet, she does enjoy the colorful illustrations. As she gets older, reading this book to her will help her to see the importance of respecting our flag through Elizabeth's eyes. There are also some neat flag facts in the back of the book! Two thumbs up!

I read the Flag Keeper to a group of First and Second grade students on Flag Day. They LOVED learning how to take care and respect our flag through Elizabeth. The students really enjoyed looking at the very fun and bright pictures of the bear family. The book really encourages discussion. We truly loved this book!!!

Raising our kids is both the most challenging and the most rewarding endeavor we face. I want to instill in my children respect and pride in our great nation. Stacy Juba's book, The Flag Keeper, helps with that. This short book illustrates Elizabeth's devotion to treating our nation's flag correctly, with honor and respect. Elizabeth serves as a good role model for our children. The book also has a short list of how to correctly handle and display our flag and some activities for children to better learn how to treat and handle the flag of the United States. After my children read this book they were curious about our flag. This served as a good launch point for me to explain even more reasons why we should show our flag honor and respect. I recommend this book for any young child so they can learn why our flag is not just a pretty piece of cloth.

Format: Paperback
The Flag Keeper is a flat-spined softcover book designed to teach young children about the American flag. Simple color illustrations follow the bear girl Elizabeth, as she learns how to treat a flag with proper respect, and why one should never fly it upside down except in emergency (an upside-down flag is a plea for immediate help from the police or anyone else available!) A handful of flag facts and discussion questions such as "How would you describe 'flag etiquette' to a friend?" round out this excellent educational book filled with information all American children should know.

This is the perfect book for teaching children (and adults!) the proper way to handle a flag. Elizabeth is a little bear who wants the big task of raising the flag while her father is away. Along with Elizabeth, we learn the how and why of flag etiquette. But this story is about more than flat etiquette; it's also about responsibility and the love of a father and daughter. Juba's narrative does a brilliant job of teaching, while also entertaining. The colorful artwork adds to the fun. Combined this is a unique and beautifully put together story.
