Claire Rudolph Murphy has turned her keen sense of history and justice on a song that many people mistake for our national anthem. In this wonderful picture book, illustrated by award-winning artist Bryan Collier, Murphy traces the history of the song from it's origins in England through the U.S. to it's role in the Civil Rights Movement. She discovers many versions of the lyrics and encourages readers to write their own verses based on causes that are near and dear to their hearts. Murphy is a rigorous researcher and a wonderful storyteller, and this book brings those skills together to great success.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
