Synopsis

Sing by Joe Raposo

Sing! Sing a song. Sing out loud, sing out strong. So begins a song first made popular on Sesame Street, then interpreted by singers of every style, from Gloria Estefan to the Dixie Chicks to R.E.M., as well as famous personalities such as Conan O'Brien, Nathan Lane, and Liam Neeson. Bestselling children's book illustrator 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 picture-book celebration of a Sesame Street favorite. --Booklist

As the boy plays and sings, musical notes rise up and literally buoy the bird (and its nest), lifting them aloft until the bird is able to fly and sing for itself, and rejoin its companions. It's an effective visual metaphor for the way that music can be a form of support. --Publishers Weekly

Hilarious. . . . A witty, well-shaped story . . . and a clever homage to many of the Great Artists and their works, from Leonardo to Warhol. --Kirkus Reviews, starred review on Bridget's Beret

A standout picture book. --Booklist, starred review on Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site

The creator of Bridget's Beret offers here another appealing story featuring a plucky heroine. Applying a full-color palette to his watercolor, ink, and colored-pencil cartoons, Lichtenheld makes use of varying page space and panel techniques to add subtle details to his narrative.

Lichtenheld's detailed and textured illustrations, rendered in wax oil pastels on vellum paper, perfectly complement the fun, rhyming text, cleverly personifying each truck with expressive eyes and amusing details. School Library Journal on Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site

A standout picture book. Booklist, starred review on Goodnight, Goodnight, Construction Site

Text and illustrations are intimately wedded in this fun, interactive read-aloud. The bold lines and bright colors in Lichtenheld's illustrations are a visually pleasing match for the bantering text. School Library Journal on Duck! Rabbit!
