I purchased this book for my youngest grandson. Andrew was in first grade and had discovered the library! The problem was he loved this book so much that he didn't want to turn it back in. My daughter in law got notes from the librarian that it was late. She searched out the book, put it in Andrew's backpack and firmly told him that he had to return it. Sure enough, days later she would again hear from the librarian. He even cried when he was told that he had to turn it in.

I went on this site to see if I could possibly find The Star-Spangled Banner in the exact form...it is an older book. Sure enough here it was. I talked to Andrew and told him I had ordered him his very own copy of the book and that he could now give the book back to the library. He did. I did.
We all lived happily ever after.

The book is great. The illustrations are wonderful. The words are timeless...the actual words to the song. Maybe your little ones would love to have this as much as Andrew does!

My children love searching for the flag on each page. I enjoy the history recap and we all enjoy learning our National Anthem (and understanding it better!). Peter Spier is always a favorite.

I wouldn't teach children about the history of our national anthem without this book! The illustrations truly help young students picture the setting for the penning of the lyrics to the Star Spangled Banner. The additional information and illustrations in the back of the book are an excellent resource for any music or classroom teacher. This is the second time I have purchased this book... I loved using the first copy in my elementary music classroom for years but needed my own copy when I retired. There are many books illustrating the lyrics; I feel this is superior.

The strains of America's National Anthem are no doubt familiar to most American children, but this patriotic tribute by Peter Spier provides compelling visual interpretations for the song. Alternating between well-researched historical vignettes and modern American scenes, Spier illustrates verses one, three, and four of our anthem, line by line. An afterword includes a historic description of the events leading up to our National Anthem's writing, with photo of the original manuscript penned by Francis Scott Key, a map of the Battle of Baltimore, and a musical score with all four verses.

As in Spier's other books, attention to detail makes this an exceptional read, providing plenty of visual interest for readers and non-readers alike; and each scene is infused with a refreshing patriotic vigor. The fact that Spier himself became an American citizen later in life gives him a fresh perspective that those who grow up on its soil can learn from. By juxtaposing history with modern experience, he connects the reader's experience with the generations of citizens who laid the foundation for the modern American way of life.

This book is an excellent companion to Spier's similar volume, We the People, which is a tribute to the American Constitution. It's best suited for elementary ages.

My boy learned at 4 to sing the first verse of the National Anthem by himself. So many people were impressed!

All verses are beautifully illustrated, making the Battle of Fort McHenry meaningful. There's a page showing pictures of many churches, representing various religions in America. It's educational in that the battle is illustrated on a map, and all versions of the American flag are shown.

If you are a strong American patriot, this book is a must!

Very good for kids. If we don't teach our kids and grandkids about American History, who will?

i bought these for a box of baltimore altho they are nice quality they were more for child and i bought these for adults
I thought it was great! It was a book I had selected to give my NINE year old great grandson who was learning to play the SSB on the piano and thought he would enjoy readnig teh xtra stazas and the history, etc.
He has not been thrilled with it so far, but, perhaps he will find it more interesting in another six months to a year or so.
