A lullaby written by folksinger Pete Seeger for his daughter in the 1950s is the text for this charming picture book that takes children on a journey from the African plains to the city. Gentle, lyrical verses enfold young listeners in a wide, wonderful world, united by love and family. The concept is echoed and enhanced by Wingerter's luminescent, realistic art; the artist's use of texture and color, from cool blues to sunny golds, adds warmth to intimate close-ups, such as a family lovingly watching its new baby, and also to stunning panoramas.

One Grain of Sand book.

by Pete Seeger & illustrated by Linda Wingerter. Folksinger Seeger’s gentle lullaby, made up for his youngest daughter nearly 50 years ago, is brought to life in a different way by Wingerter’s rich and warm acrylics. Seeger offers a brief introduction and a few bars of music, while encouraging readers and singers to expand on the words or the tune. One grain of sand in all the world.

hen asked which of his songs he would most like to be sung 100 years from now, Pete Seeger replied, 'One Grain of Sand. To bring this song to life on the page, artist Linda Wingerter painted rich, luminous scenes of families waking and sleeping all over the world-from a beach in Thailand, to a snowy pond in Scandanavia, to a high-rise apartment building in New York.

A lullaby written by one of America's favorite folksingers celebrates the fragility of the environment, the innocence of childhood, and the sense that we all are connected and part of the world's family.
This is a lovely book--the illustrations are rich with color and swirling detail, and the books shows scenes of families (human and animal) all over the world. Gorgeous, really.

The song is also lovely, but if you're like me and have a hard time reading music (Seeger includes it), then you'll want to search out the melody online. Do an online search for the following words: Smithsonian Seeger One grain of sand. You should find the Smithsonian Global Sound site with a sample of Pete Seeger himself singing the melody of his song. It's a very gentle, haunting lullaby.

Of course, we're not blessed with Seeger's voice, so we simplify it a little. Still, I'm glad to know what it sounds like when he sings it--being able to sing in a tone that matches the lovely illustrations has made this a favorite book in our house. Our 18 month old requests this one again and again, calling it the "sand" book.

Enjoy, and thank you Pete Seeger!
I suspect that Pete Seeger fans will enjoy this one more that others, but I liked it and found the children I read it to also like it. This is one of those works that need to be read a few times to really understand what Seeger is trying to say and it is a wonderful book to open up discussion with the child with. The illustrations are quite nice and if fact, beautiful. I found the book to be low keyed and rather refreshing after reading hundreds of the new type "whiz-bang" books that are filling our shelves. Some might find the words to the lullaby a bit sentimental (dare of use the word sappy), but that is okay. I have no problems exposing the kids to this type of thought and literature...actually, most of the kids I know could use a bit more of it. Recommend this one highly.
This is a beautiful picture book with a sweet message. Perfect as a gift for a new baby sibling if the the siblings are one boy and one girl as in the song and book. It may seem long to little ones the first time around but they'll ask for it again.
I borrowed this wonderful book by the local library and had trouble taking it back. This book is a wonderful book of pure poetry. One awesome book!! I used it to both read and sing my two little boys(3yr and 6 yr) to sleep at bedtime.
My 3-yr old daughter just received this book as a gift, and she loves hearing it over and over - she's not bored by it at all. In fact, she loves the illustrations and the rhythm of the words. Highly recommended.
I am a fan of Pete Seeger but the story is so-so. I gave it as a gift. I am afraid this is one for the shelf rather than being read again and again
It may be beautiful poetry with stunning pictures, but kids are bored by the book. I read the book once to my children and they have refused to ever listen to it again. They like fun stories, not sappy stuff.
