La La La: A Story of Hope by Kate DiCamillo and Jaime Kim.
“La La La…La”
A little girl stands alone and sings,
but there’s no response.
So, gathering her courage and her curiosity,
She skips out into the world,
calling to the trees,and the pond and the reeds..
But will anyone sing back to her?
This is a book where the pictures literally tell the story. A story about loneliness and finding the courage to find your voice, step out into the world and connect with it. It’s a beautiful, gentle story with the most sublime illustrations that add warmth and tenderness. This is a book to share with your little ones, a book to talk about and look for the meaning in. “What is she doing? What is she feeling? How has she overcome that?”
La La La: A Story of Hope by Kate DiCamillo and Jaime Kim was published in October 2017 by Walker Books.
There’s no need for extra words to tell this story, children will understand exactly the girl’s need to be heard, seen and answered; impeccably told, it’s a story that speak to us all. ~ Andrea Reece, Lovereading4kids
