    Did you know that our Pledge of Allegiance did not originally contain the words under God?

    Did you know that Francis Bellamy was the man who wrote the Pledge?

    Did you know that the Pledge used to be said with a solute, instead of hand over heart?

    I didn't know any of this until my daughter and I read The Story of the Pledge of Allegiance by John Hudson Tiner.

    The Story of the Pledge of Allegiance is a small, 48 page book that is jam packed with knowledge of our Pledge.

    If you are interested in learning the history of our Pledge, how it came to be, who wrote it, what the Pledge means, and many other facts about our Pledge, than I recommend this book.

    We really enjoyed it. It is short enough that it only took us a few days to read it, but full enough that we actually learned a lot.

    I really appreciated that it was written from a biblical perspective as well.

    I know we will continue to use this as a reference when we need to quickly find information on our Pledge.

    You can use this book on it's own, but it would also make a great addition to a unit study.

    We have been learning about the Revolution time period, Betsy Ross, George Washington, America, etc., so this is a perfect addition to our unit study.

    At only $6.99, you can't beat the price either.

    I think it would make a great addition to your library as well.

    I have been a fan of John Hudson Tiner's books since the first one I read. So when The Story of The Pledge of Allegiance was offered up for review, I jumped at it.

    A pretty short little book, we read it aloud for a few minutes at a time over a few days.

    This book includes sections talking about the changes made to the Pledge, how the Pledge came to be in the first place, brief biographical information about a number of people associated with the Pledge, a discussion of what the Pledge means, and there is even a quiz and some activity suggestions.

    The section on what the Pledge means is fantastic. I plan to use this with my kids over and over again as they have Scout activities relating to the Pledge.

    This is a fabulous, information-packed little book that I am very glad to own.

    The Story of the Pledge of Allegiance is a delightful little book full of the history and facts regarding America's Pledge of Allegiance. Written and brought to the Nation by the trio of Daniel Ford, James Upham and Frances Bellamy it was originally tittled "Salute to the Flag".

    Included in this book is fascinating information about the meaning behind the words and changes that took place to the phrasing over time. Also quotes from Presidents Harrison and Eisenhower regarding the Pledge of Allegiance and how the Bill of Rights pertains it.

    In addition there's a section of Questions and Activities in the back of the book.

    This would make a nice addition to your Civics or American History studies!

    I received this item for free in exchange for an honest review.

    You'll learn:* When and why the Pledge was created.* Why the words "under God" were added to the Pledge by President Einsenhower.* Why the original "pledge allegiance to my flag" was changed to "...to the flag."* A brief history of immigration to the U.S., beginning with the pilgrims and ending in the early 1900s, including information on the costs of coming here.* Information on some flag pledges used in various states across the U.S. before the official Pledge was adopted.* Details on how 19th century children helped bring flags to every school.* What the Pledge itself means.* A bit about what freedom in America means.There is also a quiz at the back of the book, in addition to a glossary and suggested activities.What I Like: There's lots to like about this book. The author doesn't shirk from the Christian history of our nation, whether talking about why the Pilgrims came here, what the Founding Fathers felt about religion, or why "under God" was added to the pledge. He also does a great job covering controversial topics like Columbus. Tiner writes: "Columbus is honored as the one who discovered America. The native Americans did not know that Europe existed, and the Europeans did not know about the New World. Columbus discovered America because he made each group aware that the other existed."What I Dislike: My only complaint is the following, confusing, sentences: "The United States is a 'republic.' We vote for our leaders...The United States is a democracy, a Greek word that means 'the people rule.'" Technically, the U.S. is not a democracy, and the author fails to explain why he calls our nation both a republic and a democracy.Overall Rating: Excellent.Kristina SeleshankoChristian Children's Book Review
