" Wonderful--good nonfiction for American history units, Women's History Month, Flag Day... " said.

" I had never thought about who made the flag that inspired The Star Spangled Banner so I found this book so fun and even more so when I realized it was true. " said.

" read this to review for inclusion in a classroom kit about the War of 1812. many interesting facts. loved the illustrations " said.

" Colorful illustrations tell the story of the making of the American flag that hung above Fort McHenry during the War of 1812. Back of the book contains a bibliography and Flag facts. " said.

" The author has written a short story of the making of our American flag. She has found a way to remind us that people working together can find strength in the symbols of freedom. Perhaps there is no greater symbol than our Star-Spangled Banner. " said.

" Entertaining and informative story about an American Flag maker in 1812 who was asked to make a "flag so large the British will have no trouble seeing it from a distance" for Fort McHenry in Baltimore. Not much was known about this flag maker some some parts were written at the authors discretion. " said.

"This was a great follow-up to Peter Spier's The Star-Spangled Banner, which I did as a read-aloud with my kids on Memorial Day. I like that the story is told through the eyes of Mary Pickersgill's daughter, Caroline, and that it tells the story of the flag without having to quote Francis Scott Key at all. The artwork is also very appealing, and my three-year-old was completely enamored of the story. I'll want to borrow this again whenever I take my kids to the American History Museum in DC to see the star-spangled banner itself. " said.

" Wonderful--good nonfiction for American history units, Women's History Month, Flag Day... " said.
