Gonna Be All Right! : Every Little Thing by Bob and Cedella Marley
RISE UP IN THE MORNING, SMILE WITH THE RISING SUN.
A big smile goes a long way in this world, and this kid has that! He bounces up and into his day with exuberant energy, and with three little birds to follow him wherever he goes, it’s easy to sing.
“EVERY LITTLE THING
WILL BE ALL RIGHT!”
Not that everything goes just like he wants it! He sets out to bake a cake, with messy results. His soccer game has its ups and down, but with hugs from his parents and empathy from his friends, it all turns out well, and as he waves to the setting sun, his mom and dad assure him everything is all right with them.
SETTLE DOWN, SWEET CHILD, AND GO TO SLEEP.
Cedella Marley, Bob Marley’s oldest child, adds to the picture books based on her father’s songs, with the help of artist Vanessa Brantley-Newton’s spritely illustrations of her eternally optimistic main character in her latest tribute, Every Little Thing: Based on the song 'Three Little Birds' by Bob Marley Chronicle Books, 2012). Cedella’s earlier top-selling adaptation of one of Bob Marley’s songs, is One Love.
