Celebrate Love with these books @AkashicBooks

 Music is In Everything (Ziggy Marley ) is a picture-book adaptation of Marley’s hit song “Music is in Everything.” Ziggy Marley is an eight-time Grammy Award winner, Emmy Award winner, author, philanthropist, and reggae icon. He has released thirteen albums to much critical acclaim, and is the author of the children’s books I Love You Too, My Dog Romeo, and Little John Crow (with his wife, Orly Marley); as well as the Ziggy Marley and Family Cookbook. His early immersion in music came at age ten when he sat in on recording sessions with his father, Bob Marley. Kirkus Reviews remarks that “the illustration of the family’s large and small clapping hands in a spectrum of skin tones sends a powerful, uplifting message about the universality of music . . . Close your eyes, listen to the music, and experience the joy of family with this buoyant tale.” 


Shiny Happy People (R.E.M., Illustrated by Paul Hoppe with Shinyeon Moon, ) is an illustrated adaptation of the hit 1991 R.E.M. song “Shiny Happy People.” This lively picture book follows the unlikely friendship between a rabbit and a fox as they teach others about the joy of inclusion and acceptance. It is the perfect vehicle for R.E.M. fans to share a loving and positive message with children of all ages. R.E.M. were a Georgia-born alternative rock band best known for their hits “Losing My Religion” and “Everybody Hurts.” The band released fifteen albums, toured the world, won multiple GRAMMYs, two Billboard Music Awards, twelve MTV Video Music Awards, and were inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, leaving a lasting legacy of great songs that defined an era.

Beautifully Illustrated
