Lucky Song

by Vera B. Williams

Published by Greenwillow, 1997
28 pages
ISBN: 0-688-14460-8

Ages 2 - 5

When little Evie woke up wearing her moon-and-stars PJs, she knew she wanted to do something, something new. She found a new hat on a hook, and her grandpa made her a small kite to fly. Evie's mother ran out to watch her, and her grandma had some supper ready after she came in from the adventure. Her sister wrapped Evie's own blanket around her. Her father sang a song was about his little Evie, her kite, and her day. Lucky Evie. She had everything any child needs most: a home, clothing and food. Most of all, she had loving family members to give her what every child also needs most: loving attention. In More, More, More, Said the Baby artist/author Vera B. Williams proved that she fully understands both the color wheel and very young children. In Lucky Song she demonstrates this once again with joyous expressionistic images in an emotionally rich circular story explicitly inviting readers to go back to the beginning. Evie is already equipped to sing her own song for many years to come. So are the children who accept the invitation to see, hear and re-read Lucky Song. Because of the book's joy, affection and beauty, adults won't even mind hearing their children ask them to read it again.
