Good Read: Together by George Ella Lyon
Summer is a great time to pick up some good reads! Our Good Reads for Kids Series continues with a book for the younger ones this week, Together by Kentucky Author George Ella Lyon, illustrated by Vera Rosenberry. This book review was brought up to the station by Sandy Linn, Youth Services and Acquisitions Librarian for the Calloway County Public Library.
From Publisher's Weekly:
The lilting cadence of Lyon's rhymed couplets and her catchy refrain ("Let's put our heads together and dream the same dream") are hard to resist--readers who try this book aloud are likely to find themselves snapping fingers or bouncing to the beat. The poem celebrates friendship, and in the whimsical world evoked by the illustrations, two girls--one black, one white--build a cabin, make a giant-sized ice cream sundae and put out a dragon's flame, among many other activities. Rosenberry's fanciful details add a pixieish touch to this spirited poem. Ages 4-6.
