      Most of us know that Francis Scott Key wrote the words to the Star Spangled Banner while being held prisoner aboard a ship on the Chesapeake Bay during the War of 1812. But there was much more to this man than the words to one song. As a child, Francis learned the Bible. He grew to manhood with a strong Christian faith guiding his actions and thoughts. The life of Francis Scott Key was lived in service to God. He sowed seeds of faith to his family and friends all his life. The beauty of his words and the example of his Christian life allow us to appreciate him today. For ages 9 to 13.

        If you go to the Smithsonian in Washington, DC, you can see a massive American flag: thirty feet tall and forty-two feet long. That's huge! But how did it get there? And where did it come from?

        The story of this giant flag begins in 1812 and stars a major on the eve of battle, a seamstress and her mighty helpers, and a poet named Francis Scott Key. This isn't just the story of one flag. It's the story of "The Star Spangled-Banner," a poem that became our national anthem, too.

        This whimsical true-story picture book that tells the story of the American flag that inspired the poem and our national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner."

        Meet Charlotte Tucker....the little girl who would grow up to be Laura Ingalls Wilder's grandmother! It's 1814 and five-year-old Charlotte lives with her family in the town of Roxbury, near the bustling city of Boston. Charlotte is a brand-new American girl, born just one generation after the United States of America was formed. Life in the Tucker's little house has always been pleasant and merry; there's Mama's garden to tend to, Papa's blacksmith shop to visit, and lots of brothers and sisters to play with. But Charlotte's family worries more and more about the war that's been going on since 1812. Now the British have gone and blockaded Boston harbor, and that means no molasses for supper. Charlotte is just beginning to realize that events happening far away can change things at her very own dinner table. What will the rest of the year bring for Charlotte and the Tucker family? Recommended for ages 8 to 12.
