Young and old can appreciate this colorful and patriotic commemoration of our nation's anthem.
This beautifully-produced gift includes the origins of the song, the full lyrics of Francis Scott Key, and illustrations by beloved American folk artist Susan Winget.
Written by Francis Scott Key during the War of 1812 as he watched a British naval bombardment, the song became the official US national anthem in 1931.
The lyrics of the song come to life for the young and young of heart with one-of-a kind scenes of battlefields, the White House and Capitol, Old Glory on the moon and at Ground Zero, and star-spangled quilts

- Since I live where the poem was written I feel very close to the history of this poem and the meaning behind it
- I own an original from 1942 1st printing. I am glad to see it still around. It restores the values of our country.The images are great you can study each one and see how we all rallied around our country and what made it great.It gives you a glimpse of the past and when we were very patriot oriented when we were in the IIWW. It is great for kids to see what our country was like then. Also how many of us can sing the 2nd verse of the Star Spangled banner let alone the 4th. It is all here. Own a great American book. Show your kids and grand kids a piece of history. you won't be disappointed.Dale
- Are you patriotic? Is your kid patriotic? Are you growing them up and raising them to respect the flag, so they will not end up as disrespectful spoiled brats burning the flag? Then this is for you.It is a beautiful illustrated song book of the Star Spangled Banner. It is the full song and the original version. It is well designed. It is a fine book at a bargain price.I purchased this for my little Sun Goddess when she was little. Now she knows not just the national anthem but all the patriotic songs by heart. Every time she sees the flag, she puts her right hand on her heart and recites the song. I handed a patriot to the society. I am sure that she will not end up growing up as a spoiled brat needing “Safe Space”, “Relaxation Rooms”, “Crying Room”, “Everyone Wins a Trophy” and “Political Correctness”!Purchase this product and teach your children to be patriotic Americans and productive members of the society. Avoid future pains by handing future parasitic creatures to the society.
- Excellent. Such a fun patriotic very American story/song with simply Gorgeous pictures(as all the d'aulaire books have)!!
