Who Sang the First Song by Ellie Holcomb and Illustrated by Kayla Harren
Who Sang The First Song by Ellie Holcomb is both full of lyrical prose and adorable pictures.
In Who Sang The First Song, singer-songwriter Ellie Holcomb explores the idea that all of creation is full of beautiful, lyrical "songs" from God. This story helps children listen to all of the sounds made on earth and to think about how beautiful they all can be--whether is is the sounds of the wind, the animals, or the flowers rustling in the meadow.
I like that Who Sang The First Song focuses on both the Creator of the earth and the beauty of all of creation. Besides being a good story to read with young children, it could lead to some fun discussions about what other sounds in nature are beautifully created by God. Holcomb wrote this book and dedicated it to her three children. The illustrations are both full of rich details and lovely to look at. Who Sang the First Song should also appeal to a wider audience range as the children are all different skin colors in this book. This book is also fairly large at about 9 1/2 inches square with thick pages for little hands to turn. I would recommend it as a great addition to anyone family's library of children's books.
I received Who Sang the First Song from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review.
