CHAPTER 1: RED, WHITE, AND YOU
The United States is a country that includes people from many other places. What keeps those people together? When their own traditions and cultures are so different, how can they share the American experience? They do it by sharing American symbols. Chester explains how we got our patriotic pictures!

-Who finished Washington’s monument?
-Who is carved on Mount Rushmore?
-Who wrote the Pledge of Allegiance?

CHAPTER 2: THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER
The most-often seen symbol of the United States is our flag. Its stars and stripes represent all Americans. The many changes our flag has been through also remind us of all the changes our nation has been through…

CHAPTER 3: WASHINGTON D.C. SYMBOLS
Many of our nation’s most important symbols are in our nation’s capitol, Washington, D.C. This city between Virginia and Maryland is where the national government meets. Government leaders work in Washington only because we choose for them to represent us. The White House and the Capitol do not belong to the people who work in them. They belong to all of us!

-Why did America need a Federal city?

-Why is the White House white?
-Where is the Capitol in the capital?

CHAPTER 4: THE STATUE OF LIBERTY

-Did France help America find liberty?
-Whose idea was the Statue of Liberty?
-How did France make Liberty?
