Sing

CHRISTY OTTAVIANO BOOKS • HENRY HOLT AND COMPANY

Lyrics and Music by Joe Raposo

"Sing! Sing a song. Sing out loud, sing out strong."
So begins a song first made popular on Sesame Street.  Now, Tom Lichtenheld has put a visual story to this timeless and universal song that celebrates perseverance, self-expression, and the power of music to help each of us find our voice. A CD with three songs is included: “Sing!” “Somebody Come and Play,” and “One of These Things.” Music by Joe Raposo. Songs performed by Becca Kauffman with The Midnight Sun Ensemble.

 

“. . .recalls a theme of courage and self-acceptance with easy-to-follow imagery. Everyone will want to sing along.”

SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL, STARRED REVIEW

KIRKUS REVIEWS

“. . . an effective visual metaphor for the way that music can be a form of support.”
