    One thought on “The First Song Ever Sung”

    1. "What was the first song ever sung?" a little boys asks. He receives different answers depending on who he asks. His sister says it "was a rope song, a swing song, a jumping, twirling leap song" while the dog says it was a moon song, a howl song, a lone song, a bone song." Love the images created by this poetic text -- was hard for me to pick just two to share.

    2. A young child asks his friends and family what the first song ever sung was. He receives many answers, but his mother's is the most comforting and sends him softly to sleep. Lyrical text makes for a good read aloud and illustrations bring to mind cave paintings and the magical images people imagine as they watch a fire burn bright.
