It is an enriching story about children who attend Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School in Willingboro, New Jersey. During this positive experience, the children gathered to form a human flag, symbolizing that we stand behind the colors of our flag and everything that it represents. Standing for the Red, White and Blue re-tells our efforts to raise money for the victims. Each child brought in one dollar to participate in the human flag. The money that was raised through this very special fund raising event was then given to the American Red Cross to benefit the hurricane Katrina victims. The book teaches children that during a crisis, we are humanitarians and we will do all that we can to assist those in need. Standing for the Red, White and Blue serves as a reminder that a natural catastrophe can occur at anytime. We must stand up as citizens of The United States of America and come together as one. We must always remember to stand behind our flag and what it represents. This extraordinary book is a necessity for every classroom and home library.
