Blue Sky White Stars by Sarvinder Naberhaus

Blue Sky White Stars

Blue Sky White Stars by Sarvinder Naberhaus; illustrated by Kadir Nelson. 2017. Oils. Published by Dial Books for Young Readers.

Brief summary: This patriotic poem celebrates the beauty and symbolism  of the American flag with illustrations of the country’s people, land, and history.

Comments: This would be a nice book to share for Veteran’s Day, Memorial Day, or Flag Day.  The poem is short. The illustrations are full-paged and capture the face of the hopes many of the immigrants seek. Several of the people are working together for the same dreams and goals in their lives.  This would be a good exercise for students to share what they think those dreams could be.
