Staff Reviews

Sweet, simple and detailed all rolled into one. Read about the process of how Betsy Ross made the most recognizable symbol of American history. Each illustration looks like a patchwork quilt as White tells you how each piece of silk and cloth was torn, sown and made into the stripes and stars that become the American Flag. Perfect for early readers or toddlers. — Jeanette


Betsy ripped. Rip, rip.Seven rich, crimson strips. Inch by inch, bit by bit, Betsy Ross clips, dips, and stitches the first American flag. Based on a sketch Betsy's friend George Washington gave her in 1776, the flag had thirteen stripes and thirteen stars, which Betsy showed George how to make with a single clip of her scissors. Included activity shows children how to make their own Betsy Ross star.
