WE ALL SING WITH THE SAME VOICE by J. Philip Miller

WE ALL SING WITH THE SAME VOICE

Age Range: 3 - 7

KIRKUS REVIEW

A song, made popular on Sesame Street, now in book form with an enclosed CD. Righteous in its message, affirming that everyone’s the same inside despite looking different on the outside, this print version will help to substantiate the popular song. Although people may originate from various locations around the world, a point made clear in the childlike pictures, there are similarities as well as differences that should be celebrated. “My name is Jack and Fred. My name’s Amanda Sue. I’m called Kareem Abdu. My name is you.” This is an expression of inclusion, where children of all races and places, abilities and facilities, and families of all kinds belong together in the circle of life. Common activities are shared, such as loving a pet or person, playing, reading, watching TV, sleeping with your teddy at night, singing by the firelight, or the full spectrum of emotions felt by every person around the globe. Readers will be enlightened and should rejoice in the important message that may be perplexing to many but seems clear to most children—everyone loves to be loved. “And when it’s time for bed, I like my stories read, ‘Sweet dreams’ and ‘love you’ said. My name is you.” (Picture book 3-7)
