Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "PreS. Irving Berlin wrote it, Barbra Streisand sings it on a CD that comes with the trade edition, and Munsinger illustrates it for young preschoolers with clear, upbeat, light-filled pictures that show a family of bears visiting New York, honoring brave firefighters and policemen in a parade, and then traveling across their beautiful country--"from the mountains to the prairies to the oceans . . ." Fireworks at the soaring Statue of Liberty are a fitting climax; then it's hugs and kisses and a view of the flag at home sweet home. The words and musical notation are appended, and the endpapers feature snapshot views of sights and monuments across the U.S., from the Liberty Bell to the Golden Gate Bridge. The art is a far cry from Munsinger's usual wild nonsense, but it shows the same intimate, smiling, affectionate view of the small child's place, safe in the arms of Dad, while opening up to a widening world. --Hazel Rochman"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "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).
