Music Is in Everything (Hardcover)
A picture book based on Ziggy Marley's popular song celebrating music's many forms, from the sounds of ocean waves to laughter in the family kitchen.
"Some songs do not make the transition to picture books; this one elevates the form. A beautiful addition to any library."
--School Library Journal
"Readers are encouraged to find the music in everything in this picture-book adaptation of Marley's exuberant song . . . The illustration of the family's large and small clapping hands in a spectrum of skin tones sends a powerful, uplifting message about the universality of music . . . Close your eyes, listen to the music, and experience the joy of family with this buoyant tale." --Kirkus Reviews
"Music Is in Everything"--a single on More Family Time, the follow-up children's album to the GRAMMY Award-winning Family Time--celebrates how music is found in everything. From ocean waves to banging pots and pans in the kitchen, from a loved one's laughter to the "river's latest tune, " Marley reminds children everywhere that you don't need an instrument to create a beautiful song. With heartfelt illustrations by Ag Jatkowska--illustrator of Marley's debut picture book, I Love You Too--Music Is in Everything is a sweet and uplifting ode to the power and beauty of song.
