Great book for fans of non-fiction biographies. Also interesting for music fans and people looking for books about immigrants. " said.

" One of my favorite song writers, Irving Berlin, lived an extraordinary life by way of music. His natural talent made Americans smile. But how did he come about making America sing? Read this extraordinary picture book biography by Nancy Churnin and James Rey Sanchez to find out! Inside the book you find vivid illustrations and lyrical text. I promise you will smile when done reading it. Published by Creston Books. #IrvingBerlin #bio #music " said.

"Another great book from Nancy Churnin!

Nancy Churnin has a knack for writing picture books about famous people--William Hoy, Charlie Sifford, and Dashrath Manjhi, just to name a few! In her book, "Irving Berlin, the Immigrant Boy Who Made America Sing," the reader begins to understand how a refugee from Russia came to write the song "God Bless America." His inspiration stemming from the crack of stickball games, the creak of cartwheels on the cobblestones, to the thump of his mother kneading dough in their crowded apartment. It's a fascinating read!

"Irving Berlin, The Immigrant Boy Who Made America Sing by Nancy Churnin, illustrated by James Rey Sanchez is one of these books that should be in every library and school because it touches on Berlin's love for music but also on issues that our society faces every day, such as immigration, racism, persecution, poverty, struggle and determination. We get to know Irving not only as song writer but as an incredible person who was inspired by Ms. Liberty's promise and followed his own dream.
Young readers will be inspired by Irving's generosity and the fact that he donated all monies he received from God Bless America as a thank you for the country who welcomed him and his family.
I highly recommend this book.

"As families sit outside on blankets together to enjoy fireworks displays this summer, they are certain to hear some of Irving Berlin's music, especially "God Bless America". The days leading up to the Fourth of July would be a terrific time to share this interesting picture book biography that tells the story of young Irving Berlin, who fled Russia with his family at the end of the nineteenth century. A poor, homeless young man, Berlin worked very hard as a waiter and learned to write music. As his songs became more famous, people all across America were encouraged by his music during rough times. It might be fun to find some of his music on the internet and share it with youngsters who are probably familiar with several of the songs (even if they don't know it). There is an author's note and a timeline at the back of the book that might serve as a good starting point for further research." said.
