Age Range: 5 - 7
A sweet, empowering picture book by debut author-illustrator Lorian Tu about two siblings who learn in their own ways how all the different parts of their family make them special.
Like the colors of the rainbow and the notes of a song, none of Arturo and Emilyn’s relatives look or sound alike.
As the siblings run errands to help prepare for a very special day in their family, Emilyn tries to write the perfect poem to describe what it means to be in their big, loving family. With every stop, and taste of delicious treats along the way, the siblings begin to understand, each in their own way, that all the different parts of their family make them who they are.
We Are a Song is a celebration of mixed-race families and siblinghood, perfect for fans of Carmela Full of Wishes by Matt de la Peñaand Where Are You From? by Yamile Saied Méndez.
