Irving Berlin: the immigrant boy who made America sing

Review by Milo, This American Kid

This is the fourth book by Nancy Churnin. I was able to go to the book release party where Nancy read the book and told us how she wrote the story.

Irving Berlin was a famous American song writer, Nancy said that he wrote over 1,500 songs. This book is about his life and him writing the song “God Bless America.” Irving Berlin moved to New York City from Russia, when he was young.

I liked how he experienced many different types of music in his. My favorite part in the book was when he was playing music on the street and people threw him coins.

I really liked this book (and Nancy’s other books) because I like true stories and I like history. I never knew about who Irving Berlin was before I read this book.

I give it 5 stars.

I recommend it to anyone who likes history, America, music, or non-fiction.
