The American Legion’s “I Pledge Allegiance” comic book is the last one to be updated as part of the Legion’s Rally Around the Flag campaign to instill pride and respect for the American flag. The other two comic books that have been recently updated for purchase include “Our Country’s Veterans” and “Our Country’s Flag.”
“I Pledge Allegiance” is a fun, interactive activity book for elementary students that educates on why we recite the Pledge of Allegiance, what each word means and why our flag is important. A group of classmates follow a bald eagle named Abe as he shares these answers, and explains much more such as why we have 50 stars and 13 stripes and how to recite the Pledge properly (hand over heart, etc.). For activities, the comic book features an American flag for kids to color, a set of pictures that asks students to put an X where people are showing allegiance to the flag, a blank box to draw what freedom means, space to write in our freedoms, a connect the dots and a matching game.
“I Pledge Allegiance” is available for purchase through Emblem Sales, Item No. 755.302. The cost is 85 cents a piece or 100 for 69 cents a piece. This comic book is an educational tool Legion Family members can give to elementary students to help them understand the importance of the Pledge of Allegiance and how to show allegiance to the American flag.
