Song in the City by Daniel Bernstrom
From Daniel Bernstrom, the acclaimed author of One Day in the Eucalyptus, Eucalyptus Tree, comes an entertaining and lyrical picture book about a young blind girl and her grandmother who experience the vibrant everyday music of their busy city.
Emmalene loves the sounds of her city—but Grandma Jean does not. She doesn’t consider it music. And she just doesn’t get it.
But when Emmalene encourages her to take a closer listen, Grandma Jean hears something beautiful.
Song in the City is a rhythmic and lightly humorous tale that bridges the gap between generations of music and family while centering love, understanding, and joy.
