Description

An inspiring and patriotic tribute to the beauty of the American flag, a symbol of America's history, landscape, and people, illustrated by New York Times bestselling and Caldecott-honor winning artist Kadir Nelson

Wonderfully spare, deceptively simple verses pair with richly evocative paintings to celebrate the iconic imagery of our nation, beginning with the American flag. Each spread, sumptuously illustrated by award-winning artist Kadir Nelson, depicts a stirring tableau, from the view of the Statue of Library at Ellis Island to civil rights marchers shoulder to shoulder, to a spacecraft at Cape Canaveral blasting off. This book is an ode to America then and now, from sea to shining sea.

Review quote

Praise for Blue Sky, White Stars * "Many readers will feel that this book looks like the America they know." --Publishers Weekly, starred review * "Though ostensibly a picture book for younger children, this has the ability to reach a much broader audience, and spark discussion of hopes and fears. It's hard to imagine a book better suited to this time." --Booklist, starred review * "Naberhaus and Nelson give new life to Old Glory for the youngest of readers." --Kirkus, starred review * "Timely homage to the relationship among America's majesty, its hopefulness and diversity, and its flag." --School Library Journal, starred review
