GRANNY PENNYAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5GOD BLESS AMERICAJuly 18, 2016GRANNY PENNYAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5God Bless America was sent to me by Zonderkidz - a division of Zondervan Publishing free of charge, in exchange for my honest review.
God Bless America is a Christian childrens picture book, written and illustrated by Peter Francis. This is a board book, so would be appropriate for little hands. It is also written in a way that a young reader could read and enjoy. It has rhyme and rhythm, so I believe that little ones will enjoy having it read to them.
I love how, Henry, the little bear enjoys a trip around America, and tells about what he sees and experiences. He visits the Statue of Liberty in New York, Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota, The Everglades in Florida, among others. Of course, he also goes to Washington DC to see all of the monuments.
I enjoyed this book, and would recommend it to children, and to those who read to them.
Fitzysmom5 Stars Out Of 5Review from Rambles of a SAHMJune 21, 2016FitzysmomQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5One of my favorite things to do is find a book with my grandkid's name in it. It completely delights them when you are reading the story aloud and come across their name. Henry is one of my middle grands and he is always exploring and being adventurous. When God Bless America arrived I knew it was the perfect book and series just for him!
The story is about Henry Bear and his wonderful travels across this great nation. The first book, God Bless America, gives an overview of his travels. The opening lines set the stage for this great adventure:
"As the golden sun rises and birds chirp outside,
Henry leaps out of bed, his eyes open wide.
There's no time to waste--today's a big day.
This bear's off to see the grand USA!"
And with that the adventure begins. With rhyming verse you follow Henry's adventures through New York, South Dakota, Florida, Texas, California, Washington DC, and then back home again. (I know, his route doesn't make sense, but it is fun!) The story concludes with these appropriate words:
"Now home, all unpacked, he gets ready for bed.
Henry folds his paws. 'Thank you, God,' Henry said,
'For the mountains and trees, for freedom so true.
God Bless America, the red, white, and blue."
Even if you don't have a Henry in your midst this would be a wonderful edition to your child's library. Summer seems to be a time when we are all especially patriotic. This delightful book and the others that go with it will help you start a conversation with your little one about how blessed we are to live in this great country.
I received a copy of this book to facilitate my review.
Frosty4 Stars Out Of 5Cute story for little onesMay 15, 2016FrostyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Henry the bear's enthusiasm for learning about America is contagious. Children will enjoy landmarks Henry finds as he travels along in God Bless America. They've chosen prominent places and cities for the book. This is the beginning of a series that will feature each state. The illustrations are fun and colorful, and at times comical. This board book is perfect for two and three year olds. My favorite part is Henry's prayer for the USA at the end of the book. I received this book in exchange for a fair review.
