I most certainly would not recommend this book to anyone who was not an American with the inclusion of the patriotic songs, but overall it was a really good book. I loved learning some of the fun facts that go behind the songs. The book itself is beautiful, and I really liked the layout and presentation of it.
Disclosure of Material Connection: I am supposed to receive this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze.com
Target Audience: American Catholics?
Positive Elements: Really great historical facts. I also love that the sheet music and lyrics for the songs were included.
Inappropriate Language: None
Unbiblical Content: We are supposed to praise the Creator, not creation, and while I am an American, some patriotic songs just rub me the wrong way. Weren't the early Christians martyred because they refused to praise their country or king instead of God? Why must we do exactly what they were killed for not doing?
Other Negative Elements: Just the inclusion of the songs that were not Christian hymns.
