I Pledge Allegiance

Libby's great aunt, Lobo, is from Mexico, but the United States has been her home for many years, and she wants to become a U.S. citizen. At the end of the week, Lobo will say the Pledge of Allegiance at a special ceremony. Libby is also learning the Pledge this week, at school -- at the end of the week, she will stand up in front of everyone and lead the class in the Pledge.

Libby and Lobo practice together -- asking questions and sharing stories and memories -- until they both stand tall and proud, with their hands over their hearts.

"Libby vows to practice saying the pledge with Lobo in the week leading up to the ceremony, providing an easy opportunity for the authors to integrate both lines of the pledge and discussions of its meaning into the text. Likewise, the inclusion of Spanish text not only introduces readers to potentially new vocabulary words but it also helps them understand the importance of Lobo’s Mexican heritage as well as her American citizenship. Barton’s warm, mixed-media illustrations echo the warmth in Lobo’s words: “This country is like one big family...that works together to take care of the people who need help.” An authors’ note adds more personal connections as well as a few lines of historical background about the pledge." -- Annie Miller, Booklist
