“All About Flags” by Robin Jacobs, illustrated by Ben Javens, shares information about not only flags of different countries, but also about flags for different purposes, such as naval flags, flags used to identify groups of people, and more. Readers learn that there are unusual flags out there, including square flags of two countries, a flag with more than four sides, etc. Flags in the book are grouped by continent and then by theme, so there is a clear order for how to understand the flags as they are represented throughout the book.

There is also clarification of flags through the ages, as well as discussion of symbols that some flags have, including suns, moons, crosses, triangles, and stars, plus colors are presented as having specific meanings.

The book is not only explanatory about each flag, but also very colorful. There is so much to not only learn but to see and enjoy as you view the different configurations that all of the flags have. The glossary at the end as well as the index of countries rounds out the book, making it very easy to find whatever information necessary to learn about different countries and their flags.
