Kid’s Book Review: One Sweet Song

Kid’s Book Review: One Sweet Song

About the Book, Author and Illustrator

One Sweet Song is a sort about the power music has to bring people together.

Written by a kindergarten teacher and inspired by the balcony singing in Italy during the pandemic – with a countdown from one to ten and back gently woven in – the gently rhyming text and vibrant artwork harmonise beautifully resulting in an up-lifting, inclusive celebration  of community, united by a shared experience.



Jyoti Rajan Gopal is a writer, mum and Kindergarten teacher. Growing up, she lived in Thailand, Indonesia, Myanmar, India and China. Jyoti writes stories that speak to her heart, that reflect her multiple identities, that she wishes her daughters had growing up, that she wishes her students had now.

Sonia Sánchez is an illustrator.

Book Review

This is a nice story about music and sharing music with your friends and community

This is a nice story about music and sharing music with your friends and community.

I liked reading this and counting the music notes on each page. I really like how everyone joined in for the fun and then slowly it was night time and everything went quiet.

The pictures are really nice and I liked looking at them and seeing all the characters.

I would recommend this book to all children who like music and having fun with your neighbours.
