Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Illustrator Lynn Munsinger, along with a very cute family of bears, brings 20th-century songwriter Irving Berlin's 1938 classic to life in God Bless America, a warm, nostalgic picture book packaged with a CD of the song sung by none other than Barbra Streisand. Berlin's original lyrics are accompanied by various scenes of a bear father and his two cubs on a road trip--from the mountains, to the prairies, to the ocean white with foam. Along the way they witness a parade of firefighters and police officers, stop at the Lincoln Monument, and stand in the crown of the Statue of Liberty. The trip ends back at the ranch: "My home sweet home." Inspired youngsters will find the musical notation to the song at the back of the book. A portion of the publisher's proceeds will be donated to the God Bless America Fund to benefit American youth. (Ages 4 to 8)

From Publishers Weekly

In another song-lyrics-turned picture book-text, God Bless America by Irving Berlin, illus. by Lynn Munsinger, comes packaged with a CD, with the tune sung by none other than Barbra Streisand. Munsinger keeps the focus on Manhattan in an opening scene as well as with a parade of police officers and fire fighters, but she also adds cherry blossoms to a scene of the Lincoln Memorial at the capital, and of course the mountains, prairies and oceans (white with foam). Ages 3-7.

Most patriotic children's books get sappy or trite ... but not this one. The words are merely the lyrics of the great song. However, the illustrations that bring those words to life create a wonderful, colorful celebration of our country, without being overly sentimental. They are so well done they stir up feelings nonetheless. When you turn the page to the fireworks over The Statue of Liberty, goosebumps are guaranteed. My kids loved the family trip across the U.S. This is Lynn Munsinger at her best! I highly recommend this book over any other I've ever seen.

This is a wonderful picture book. I am using it for second language learners during summer school. This also appeals to the musician in me. I plan to play the CD of God Bless America while showing the book to the students.

My Toddler Montessori class loves this book. We usually start reading and singing it the beginning of the school year with very young 2 year olds. Usually by Christmas all of the children know most of the words and can sing it. Parents can not believe their child can sing this song and grandparents love it! Sorry it has gone out of print, we have purchased extra's as even board books that are really loved can not with stand more than a year with a class of 2 year olds!

This book has beautiful, simple illustrations to complement Irving Berlin's God Bless America. It is a perfect book to introduce the song to young children, as the illustrations depict the lyrics in a wonderful, age appropriate way. I use this book in my preschool classroom all the time.

This comes with a CD of Barbra Streisand singing God Bless America - which is great (and I am not a huge Barbra fan). The illustrations are wonderful and do a great job translating the lyrics of this classic song.

I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of the book. Since it was used I was not sure what to expect. The description was accurate.
