The Song for Everyone (Hardcover)

The Song for Everyone By Lucy Morris Cover Image
Special Order


This stunningly illustrated picture book debut about the power of music to transform hearts and minds will be an instant classic.

A cat, a boy, an elderly woman, and a line of students may appear to have little in common, but when they pass under the same window, each are swept up and transformed in different ways by the magical music that streams toward them and buoys their weary spirits. But one day, the music stops, and the town must work together to save the music that they grew to love.

The Song for Everyone is a stunning allegory for the emotional complexities we carry within us, the universally soothing effects of music, and the importance of community. Timeless and comforting, this picture book is one to read again and again.
