Calling All Music Lovers!

One Sweet Song, the delightful new picture book by JYOTI RAJAN GOPAL, is an ode to the power of music and community! Full of vibrant illustrations, this sweet picture book celebrates a shared moment of spontaneous joy and celebration, so come join us at our Manhattan store to celebrate it with us!

In One Sweet Song, in a quiet neighborhood, a single note trills through the air. Another note joins, and then another. One by one, curious people are drawn to their windows, doorways, and balconies to support the medley. Professional musicians play instruments from around the world, while others bang pots and pans. All are welcome as the notes swirl and dip and crescendo, coming together to make one sweet song. And when the music fades and this diverse neighborhood is once again silent, the reverberations of unity remain. Written by a kindergarten teacher and inspired by the balcony singing in Italy during the pandemic—with a countdown from one to ten and back gently woven in—this rhythmic synergy of text and art is a buoyant, global-minded celebration of how music connects us, even in the darkest of times.
