GEORGE M. COHAN (1878-1942) grew up on the road in a vaudeville family. After moving to New York in his teens, he and his musicals became hits on Broadway. You're a Grand Old Flag was the first song in a musical to sell over one million copies of sheet music.
WARREN KIMBLE is one of America's most successful folk artists. Originally an elementary art teacher in New Jersey, he was drawn to the serenity of Vermont, where he lives and works today. His favorite medium is paint on distressed wood―antique doors, breadboards, or tabletops that he and his wife travel widely to find. He and his wife, Lorraine, have 3 children and many grandchildren.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1—Cohan's patriotic composition gets an exuberant visual treatment, showcasing a variety of American flags painted in acrylics on antique textured wood by a folk artist. Each full-page painting is matched with one line from the song. The subjects depicted range from an expected eagle and schoolhouse to a more surprising snowman and scarecrow. A sly sense of humor comes across through pictures such as a cow and a pig nose to nose matched with "Should auld acquaintance be forgot." A preening rooster, dressed in a tight flag suit, accompanies the line, "Where there's never a boast or brag." Naturally, the predominant colors used are red, white, and blue. A page of "Song Notes" and "Flag Facts" facing the musical notation for the melody rounds out the book. Folk-art enthusiasts and young children learning the song will appreciate this offering.—Lucinda Snyder Whitehurst, St. Christopher's School, Richmond, VA
