Meet Our Flag, Old Glory – Yarn American Flag

Yarn American Flag

We got Meet Our Flag, Old Glory by April Jones Prince and Joan Paley from the library. It was a nice book about the American Flag which I guess is out of print now. You can get it from your library.

We talked about the main features of our flag and about some of the original flags that were shown in the book. We also talked about the flag we saw hanging at the Old North Church.
