“La La La”
When a little girl sings, she waits for someone or something to answer,
but no one does.
So she goes out searching through the reeds, the trees, the pond, day and…
…night. She sings to the moon with no response. When she falls asleep, she is awakened by a song.
Read the book to see who sings back.
This book promotes inspiration and curiosity.
WHY I LIKE THIS BOOK: I like this book because it inspires hope to keep singing and find that someone who will sing back.
