Music All Around
One Story, One Song
Listen to an excerpt
Story Gema Sirvent Illustrations Lucia Cobo
Sofia is off to her grandparents for the holidays. She leaves her seaside home, its singing waves and whispering sand knowing that the sounds of the forest await her. Amongst the dark pines and the majestic oaks, she’ll discover the music of the night, the songs of a fox, an owl and a wolf. At a clearing in the woods, she’ll feel the wind blowing as it does on the beach. She’ll wave her invisible baton to the stars, offering as a gift to the forest the music from the sea.
The intricate illustrations are spellbinding, with every blade of grass and drop of rain rendered with precision. FOREWORD REVIEWS
