KIRKUS REVIEW

Most eight and nine year olds know The Star Spangled Banner. How many of them know the story behind the song, of how and when and where it came to be written. Simple retailing of the incidents that led up to Francis Scott Key's being held captive by the British during the assault on Fort McHenry and to the emotional crisis that inspired the words of the song which became the national anthem.
