This bold and bright picture book, from award-winning author illustrator Sophy Henn, is a wonderful journey through a little girl’s emotions, showing how the music inside you is what really makes you, you.
There are happy tunes where you feel bursting with life, slow tunes when everything feels heavy and sad, marching stomps and sleepy swoons – a rhythm for every mood.
The glorious colour illustrations perfectly portray the different emotions, with the inspiring rhyming text just shouting to be read out loud and enjoyed in a classroom or between parent and child.
Although aimed at nursery and above, I feel this book would work best for slightly older children in opening discussions about feelings and emotions and how we all feel different or out of sorts sometimes. Like the little girl in the book, to be true to ourselves, we all need to find our own music and rhythm and march to our very own beat.
