Dance to the beat of Sage's Song!
Find out what listening is really worth as Sage makes music from the sounds of the earth. Banging away on her drum, Sage can really make a racket! Stopping to listen to the world around her, Sage learns that music surrounds her in the simplest of sounds. This sensory exploration teaches the value of listening and inspires an awareness of the beautiful music nature creates.
From the Pumpkinheads series, teaching messages that parents care about through books that children love!
Sage's Song is an energetic fun-filled story of a darling little girl's ability to find music all around her.
The sing-songy rhyme, in which the story is told, creates a musical rhythm that encourages young readers to get moving. Motion words like bang, clap, and stomp entice children to feel the sounds around them. Sage also teaches children to take time to listen for birds, dogs and bees whose musical sounds are often overlooked.
The illustrations vividly construct the world as seen and heard by Sage. From the noisy drums to the tiny bees, she observes and listens to everything. Sage is bubbly toddler and fits perfectly into the family of precious Pumpkinheads.
Often in our busy lives we forget to slowdown and take notice of the world around us. I love that Sage's Song reminds children and parents to stop and enjoy the little things life offers.
I highly recommend picking up a copy of Sage's Song. Available from KiteReaders on Amazon.com.
