    Sometimes a simple song can help children navigate all of life’s biggest feelings.

    Do You Need a Song? is the joint project of childhood friends Everett and Kendall, who reconnected after two decades to create the book. Originally written as a song to help the author’s son fall asleep, each rhyming, love-filled stanza of Do You Need a Song? invites the reader into a new feeling. Kids will enjoy the colors and animal metaphors associated with each feeling, and there is even a hidden music note on each page to find. Whether read, or sung, Do You Need A Song? is a beautiful book kids and adults will enjoy.
