Praise For Star-Spangled: The Story of a Flag, a Battle, and the American Anthem

“Grove provides a page-turning narrative that enhances the familiar aspects of this story and fills in those little-known areas… Generous archival illustrations and the rich and varied backmatter make this a boon for fledgling historians. A well-researched and spirited slice of history.”

— Kirkus Reviews

"Beautiful full-color photographs and artwork bring this story to life. . . This is a great addition to collections where American history is a hot item." 

— School Library Journal
