" Lovely! Touching! Perfect! I cried!!!! " 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 story covers the construction of the American Flag as it was made for Fort McHenry. It is written in the viewpoint of a young girl, Caroline, who helped in the construction of such an important flag.
I love how the author referenced "The Star-Spangled Banner (song)" in the use of certain phrasings in her book. It gave the story a sense of importance and brought it closer to its moment in history.
