What a Wonderful World

What a Wonderful World
Based on the Song by Bob Thiele and George David Weiss
as Sung by Louis Armstrong
Illustrated by Tim Hopgood
Henry Holt and Company, 2014. Picture Book.

There really isn't a better song to have running through your head than What a Wonderful World. Read and sing this picture book with the little ones about you over and over again until they can leaf through the pages singing this song. They will begin "reading" as they match the words to the pictures on the page. They will forever keep the beautiful and brightly colored images in their mind's eye. The illustrator describes at the book's conclusion hearing the rendition sung by Louis Armstrong as a young boy and later hearing the song again and feeling compelled to put the words with pictures to treasure permanently. It truly is a wonderful world and this book helps remind us.
