God Bless America Board Book
Irving Berlin. HarperFestival, $6.99 (30pp) ISBN 978-0-06-009864-3
A patriotic spring bouquet blooms in red, white and blue. In a new board book edition of God Bless America, Lynn Munsinger's warm, reassuring illustrations accompany the beloved Irving Berlin song's lyrics. A father bear and two cubs visit New York City, where they cheer a parade of police, firefighters and rescue workers. Then they travel from the mountains to the prairies to the oceans and back to home sweet home. The words and music wrap up the patriotic volume, bookended by snapshot views of U.S. landmarks.
