This unconventional interpretation of the classic song finds a modern application with joyful illustrations that send

Kirkus Reviews


Charming…The importance of unity and community among the children is linked with

the solemn responsibility of taking care of the earth while being kind to every living creature.


A beloved spiritual gets an imaginative and anthropocentric rendering in this vibrant picture book celebrating unity...

This is an ideal choice for story time or classroom reading.

School Library Journal

Earnest and openhearted.
