God Bless America

God Bless America, written by Amy Beveridge, is a short, happy book about America. It is written in four verses. Each verse ends with a Bible reference. The text starts out like this:

Dear God, I love America!
There is so much to see.
You have made this special land
For children just like me.

Then this Bible verse is given as a reference: “The entire universe was formed at God’s command.” – Hebrews 11:3.

The illustrations by Rusty Fletcher and Terry Julien are bright and colorful, with lots of happy faces.

What I Like: The text is short, the rhyme works, and the pictures are bright. What’s not to like!

What I Dislike: Nothing.

Overall Rating: Excellent.

Age Appeal: 4-8.
