The joyous cover says so much. Here is the story of a woman who loves to sing. As is always true, this entry in the Little People, Big Dreams celebrates a life and tells a story for young readers in an engaging way.
Readers will learn that Aretha grew up surrounded by music. She sang in church before moving on to a more secular stage. Aretha sang for Martin Luther King Jr. and Barack Obama. She wrote her own music and, of course, became known for singing R E S P E C T. What a value to teach our young!
Many thanks to NetGalley for this gorgeously illustrated title in exchange for an honest review.
