My daughter is a big nerd like her dad and loves learning- she is 5 so it makes it difficult to find books that are close to her level. When I saw this book- I thought "it is a board book so it might not have enough "meat" for her to learn from". I was wrong- this is an excellent book and just the right level for her and most elementary school children.

We have purchases a series of this author's and/or publisher's boardbooks for our kids (now 6 and 4). They are a very simple, well illustrated history book that the kids enjoy reading or have read to them. This one was no exception. The information is very simply put forward in a sentence or so each page with a large illustration. Both usually get the kids asking questions at least a few times throughout the book. That allows us to add additional information and details. If your litte kids are wondering about the national anthem and you want them to understand how it was written and where, pick up this boardbook - they'll enjoy it.

My two and a half year old girls now have this book memorized and run around singing the national anthem. What a wonderful addition to their collection. They also thoroughly enjoy "The Story of America's Birthday" from this series.

Our children should be learning the history, the true history, of our country. This type of well presented bit of American history is great for that purpose. Thanks for careful packing and quick shipping.

I didn't read the size of the book because I expected a full size book. My students will get the meaning though which is all that matters.

This is a well written, short version of the birth of our National Anthem. I learned this many years ago in grammar school. My grandchildren 11,13,& 15 could not tell me the story nor did they have any recollection of having heard this before from any teacher. Parents and grandparents will enjoy having the children in the family read this - it is great to give some truth to the younger ones since so much of the basics is being ignored or forgotten by our "teachers". It is a good review for all of us...

This book was fantastic for teaching K-2 about the Star Spangled Banner and why it is our National Anthem. It tells the story in simple text that doesn't get too bogged down in details. The only drawback is that it's a board book, which can make it awkward for reading aloud. It would be nice if the pictures were bigger. However, it's a great introduction to use for teachers of lower grades.
