What You Need to Know:
One Love is a charming story celebrating the power of community, family and friends.
• This picture book, written by Bob Marley's daughter, Cedella Marley, is based on his iconic song of the same name.
One Love would make a wonderful starting point for a unit on classroom or family community.
Sweet Book Summary:
Cedella Marley has taken her father's beautiful song and crafted a heartwarming story of togetherness. The song follows a joyful little girl who brings her community together to clean up a local park. Together, the lyrics and the illustrations send a beautiful and timely message of love and compassion.
