Write On, Irving Berlin!

What a pleasure reading Write On, Irving Berlin! by a fellow Book Meshuggenah, Leslie Kimmelman.
This is a vivid biography of Irving Berlin, beautifully told and charmingly illustrated.
An inspiring story about a poor Jewish immigrant boy who daydreams too much and sings to himself.
As a teenager, he keeps singing. As an adult, he goes on to writing songs, even in the bath tub. And he gives all the money he made from his song, “God Bless America” to the Boy and Girl Scouts of America.
