Every Little Thing

"This fun book by Bob Marley's first-born daughter, Cedella, pairs her father's beloved song with images that explore the ups and downs of a child's typical day. An adorable preschooler, sporting a Bob Marley T-shirt, shares a message of peace, love, and harmony. Rainy weather, a lonely child in need of comfort, and a baking project gone awry are opportunities for the boy to remind himself and to reassure those around him that "Every little thing/is gonna be/all right." This lyrical and positive board book will strike a chord with worrywarts and loving children everywhere."
