Irving Berlin

The Immigrant Boy Who Made America Sing

The story of songwriter and composer Irving Berlin’s humble beginnings and rise to Broadway and Grammy fame takes shape in an engaging biography that highlights the compassion, generosity, and patriotism that characterized his life. Berlin is depicted wrapped in an expressive, bright red scarf that swirls and dances along the streets of New York along with lines of musical notes. Children will enjoy learning about the inspiration behind such well-known hits as “White Christmas” and “God Bless America.”
