La La La: A Story of Hope

by Kate DiCamillo
illustrated by Jamie Kim

Ref: 16128

A small, lonely child with a single note to share: "La"...A note which cannot find an echo anywhere. Not in the sunbeams, nor the leaves, nor the grasses, nor the pond. But then finally...there is a reply of "Las"! A gorgeous, single word, picture book about finding your song, and staying resilient, energetic and optimistic in that quest. Open to multiple readings and interpretations. 'Like the best picture books, this would work with a wide age range and could be constantly revisited and mined as the basis for many a classroom discussion or as a simple bedtime comforter.. .It is a terrific starting point for discussions about loneliness, difference, empathy, feeling excluded etc.' (Mark Jennett, Equalities Trainer/Consultant, LL reviewer). Beautiful format: a square shape; mixed-media illustrations; simple crossover hues of autumnal oranges/greens with a luxuriously deep purple. Easily attractive enough to deserve the longer-than-usual number of pages for a picture books. East Asian protagonist. Age 1-6, Hardback 68pp
