  1. Book Title Write On, Irving Berlin!
  2. Book Description Escaping persecution for being Jewish, the Baline family flees Russia and arrives in New York City in 1893. Little Israel Isidore Baline is only five years old. Israel and his family are ready to begin a new life in America. They settle on the Lower East Side and soon Israel (now nicknamed Izzy) starts school. And while he learns English, he is not a very good student. He daydreams and sings in class. But while these may not be traits that are helpful in the classroom, these are wonderful tools for a budding composer. And by the time that Izzy (now known as Irving) is a young man, he is on his way to becoming one of the most well-known composers in America. This picture-book biography examines the life of Irving Berlin, the distinguished artist whose songs, including God Bless America, continue to be popular today. 5/2018
