One Grain of Sand: A Lullaby

Ages birth - 3

A lullaby written by American folk icon Pete Seeger in 1957 and recorded by Seeger and many other artists over the years offers soothing cadences--even when spoken-- to encourage little ones to sleep. But it also offers comfort for all old enough to make sense of its words, cradling children with the knowledge that they are small but so very significant. "One grain of sand in all the world," loved and cherished by another. The songwriter's message is beautifully extended with Linda Wingerter's rich, graceful acrylic illustrations that set each verse of the song against backdrops featuring people and places around the world A note from Seeger provides musical notation for those who prefer to sing rather than read the song, as well as information on its origins as a lullaby for his youngest daughter.
