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.”
