What I loved: This book is filled with colorful, beautiful, and imaginative illustrations that bring the emotions of the story to life. The text is simple, and a lot is told through the illustrations and the unspoken words between the lines. The idea of a good song is certainly one that will resonate with readers, as songs that touch the heart always hold a special place. The inspiration of the story is also interesting, and I love the elements of Hawaiian culture intertwined in the story.
Final verdict: With lush imagery and simple text, THE GOOD SONG speaks to the heart with a story of grief, life, and the power of music.
