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)About the Author:
