A melody is searching for someone who will listen to it and sing it. The melody asks the mountains, the trees, and the river if they are hoping for a song. But they either won’t listen or already have their own songs. The melody asks the animals and birds if they need a song to sing, but no one wants the melody. Finally the melody finds a mother who needs to soothe her baby with a song.
This is such a sweet book! I love the story of the melody searching for its purpose in the world. It almost has a fairy-tale legend kind of style, since even the mountains, rocks, and rivers are personified.
The illustrations are very bright and colorful, with interesting figures in the background of each scene. The rocks and trees have big eyes and wide mouths. It’s so cute!
