Most Helpful Customer Reviews
One Grain of Sand A Lullaby, written by Pete Seeger and paintings by Linda WingerterThis story is a lullaby written by a father to his child. The story is repetitive and has some rhyming words. It takes the reader on a journey across the world. The illustrations/paintings are very colorful, but also soothing. It gives the reader a quick peek at different cultures and cities.I enjoyed the repetitive verse and how the paintings show people doing everyday tasks. I like how the author and the artist compare bedtime for children and animals from around the world.Extension Activity:Listen to quiet music (maybe with the lights off). Examples could be- classical, Native American, nature noises (rain,ocean, etc.)
