Inch by inch, bit by bit, Betsy Ross clips, dips, and stitches the first American flag. Based on a sketch Betsy's friend George Washington gave her in 1776, the flag had 13 stripes and 13 stars, which Betsy showed George how to make with a single clip of her scissors. Includes an activity showing children how to make their own Betsy Ross star. Full color.
