The Impossible Patriotism Project
by Linda Skeers, illustrated by Ard Hoyt
Caleb’s class is making projects that represent patriotism to display at Parents’ Night. Molly dresses up like the Statue of Liberty and Kareem draws a map of the United States. But Caleb can’t think of a single way to show what patriotism means to him. Besides, his dad can’t even come to Parents’ Night because he is far away, serving as a soldier. Then, when Caleb really starts thinking about his dad and what he is doing for the country, inspiration finally strikes!
About the author
Linda Skeers was inspired to write this book by this event: One July 4th, her nephew's apartment building held a balcony-decorating contest. Not able to afford fancy store-bought decorations, her nephew, who had just returned from overseas military duty, hung his service uniform from his balcony with a sign that said: "I served my country." He won the contest. Ms. Skeers lives in Iowa with her husband, a former US Air Force officer, and two sons.
