Item Description...
This colorfully illustrated book provides young readers with informative explanations about the origins of American symbols, such as the American flag, Uncle Sam, the Statue of Liberty, and more.

Publishers Description
Have you ever wondered why the American colors are red, white, and blue? Did you know that our national mascot was almost a turkey rather than a bald eagle? Can you trace your family's ancestry back to the "Mayflower" Pilgrims, or perhaps to a cowboy of the Old West? Do you think you would like to spend Thanksgiving watching footraces rather than televised football or eating venison and oysters rather than turkey? Many of us have played with Lincoln Logs, but did you know that they were named after President Abraham Lincoln, who was born in a log cabin?
Symbols have always played a crucial role in shaping our identity as a country. The American buffalo, the Statue of Liberty, the "Mayflower, " and Uncle Sam himself have all helped convey to the world the American values of liberty and democracy.
Delno and Jean West's lively prose unveils the stories behind America's symbols, complemented by Christopher Manson's handsome woodcuts, which perfectly convey the rugged individualism of the American spirit.

Still Great After All These Years!  Jun 22, 2005
Five years ago, I reviewed this book when my son was nine years old. He is now almost 15, still enjoys this book, but more importantly he has shared it with his younger brother who has also found it to be a joy to read and learn from for the last years.
I hope that many have been able to buy and enjoy this book, as our family has been able to do over time. If not, now is the time!
Great for my 5th Grade Class  Jun 5, 2002
Uncle Sam and Old Glory is an invaluable resource for the classroom teacher who wants to turn her students on to American History. Each symbol is explained in detail in an easy to read and interesting manner. Likewise, each symbol is accompanied by beautifully detailed woodcut illustrations. Not only did my fifth graders find Uncle Sam and Old Glory to be informative and interesting; but, it served as a springboard to further reading and research. I highly recommend that Uncle Sam and Old Glory be included in every classroom library. I plan to use it year after year with my fifth grade students.

An Excellent Teacher Resource  Jun 17, 2000
I am a 3rd grade teacher and I highly recommend this book. It is an excellent resource for teaching about the Symbols of America. Each page focuses on the origins and meanings of a particular symbol in concise, yet highly interesting text. The illustrations are full color and fabulous. My students love this book and practically fight to be able to read it during free time.
Great Book for Children and their Parents  Apr 22, 2000
This is one of the most interesting books I have read to my 9-year-old son. He enjoyed the pictures and the stories tremendously. It was also interesting to me; I learned some interesting facts about our American history while reading this book to my son. I highly recommend it to any parent and to all teachers!
