For July 2021, we are featuring Cedella Marley's 'One Love', based off of the iconic song by the same name written by her father, the late Bob Marley. The book promotes the idea of a world united by love and we see this demonstrated through the illustrations of a park and what looks to be a community garden bringing people together. Cedella writes that her father thought a world united by love was possible if we all embrace and take care of one another. This book reminds readers, young and old, that positive change is possible when we work toward it together.
Mom: "What do you like best about the book?"
Lana (2 years old): "The birds, the dogs, and the friends!"
