In the book, Elizabeth the bear wakes up the American flag in the morning and puts it to bed at night. She acts as her father’s “flag keeper,” helping him with his daily tasks of raising the flag and retiring it for the evening. She soaks up the etiquette facts that Dad teaches her, including don’t leave the flag out in the dark without a spotlight. When Dad leaves for a business trip, it frustrates Elizabeth that their flag will be stuck in a boring garage. Every flag she sees reminds her of her job as flag keeper, and Elizabeth grows determined to make her father proud.

The book is designed to teach children about U.S. flag etiquette through an educational fiction story. It includes discussion questions, flag facts, and an activity. The Midwest Book Review recently wrote, “Simple color illustrations follow the bear girl Elizabeth, as she learns how to treat a flag with proper respect, and why one should never fly it upside down except in emergency (an upside-down flag is a plea for immediate help from the police or anyone else available!) A handful of flag facts and discussion questions such as ‘How would you describe ‘flag etiquette’ to a friend?” round out this excellent educational book filled with information all American children should know.'”
