Children’s Book Review: God Bless Our Country by Hannah C. Hall

by Sally Matheny

Book Review of God Bless Our Country
God Bless Our Country, a board book by Hannah C. Hall, introduces young children to a few of the reasons we love America—especially in the summer.  

This twenty-page, Christian book, published by Tommy Nelson, reminds children of reasons to celebrate living in America. 

Too often, our little ones overhear negative opinions of our country. This joyful little book points out the blessings God gives us—especially those in the summer time. The satisfaction of families working and playing outside together, parades, swimming, stargazing, and fireworks to name a few. And don’t forget eating ice cream!


An explosion of cute, and colorful, pictures fills every page. Steve Whitlow chose to illustrate animal families portraying Hall’s rhyming stanzas. A family of deer picnic on a quilt. Two eaglets nestle beside a grandpa eagle who’s praying underneath an American flag. Children will delight in seeing God’s creatures participating in human activities. Children may even giggle over an otter wearing a peppermint-striped swimsuit, holding his nose, and cannonball jumping into a lake!

The slightly padded cover, with rounded corners, and the heavy cardstock pages will make this a sturdy book for babies and toddlers. 

I’d recommend adults reading it to children ages one to five-years-old. Big brothers and sisters who are early readers (1st to 2nd grade), will also enjoy reading it to their siblings.
