"Kimmelman does a fine job of touching on both Berlin’s professional and personal lives and doesn’t shy away from mentioning that not everyone liked the fact that a Jewish immigrant was writing America’s most beloved songs, like “White Christmas.” ... Gardner’s artwork, which captures Berlin’s exuberance, is displayed nicely on oversize pages... A fine mix of music and the immigrant experience." -- Booklist 

"Heartwarming Americana."  --Kirkus Review
