Description-

  • "Ziggy Marley in Concert" was awarded a 2014 Grammy Award for Best Reggae Album!
    "A sweetly affectionate ode to togetherness and love."
    Publishers Weekly
    "Lyrics inspired by an exchange with Marley's 3-year-old daughter are set to bright paintings of a multicultural cast of children and adults enjoying each other's company indoors and out...The art will draw and hold young children's attention."
    Kirkus Reviews
    "Sure to be a hit at bedtime, the lyrical story conveys the sweet, soothing, and affirming message."
    School Library Journal
    "The emphasis of this book is that love has no boundaries."
    New York Journal of Books
    "This looks to be on our home charts for weeks, months, maybe even years."
    Austin Chronicle
    "An inspiring storybook edition of the lyrics of famous reggae performer Ziggy Marley...song lyrics are surrounded and set in warm, vivid illustrations of children of many hues, laughing and playing with loving parents and grandparents in a healthy, light, balanced natural world."
    Midwest Book Review
    "Orly Marley, 42, adores the tale husband Ziggy wrote for daughter Judah, 9."
    US Weekly, Objects of Affection mention
    "The illustrations are simply stunning...But even more than the gorgeous illustrations is the wonderful message that this book conveys—that families and friends will always love each other."
    The Mama Games
    Released simultaneously with Ziggy Marley's new album, Fly Rasta.
    A debut children's book by reggae icon Ziggy Marley with illustrations by Ag Jatkowska.
    A beautifully illustrated, multicultural children's picture book based on one of Ziggy Marley's most beloved songs, "I Love You Too." The book explores a child's relationship with parents, nature, and the unstoppable force of love. This is Ziggy's first book, though his foray into children's music is extensive and very well known. He is the singer of "Believe in Yourself," the popular theme song of the hit TV show, Arthur.
    From the introduction by Ziggy Marley:
    "One day I was in my kitchen making breakfast with my then three-year-old daughter Judah. She looked at me and said, 'I love you.' I spontaneously replied to her, 'I love you too.' From that came the song and now the book based on the lyrics. I hope you share and enjoy this with your loved ones as I have with mine. I love you too."
    *A coproduction of Akashic Books and Tuff Gong Worldwide

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    April 28, 2014
    The lyrics to reggae artist Marley's Emmy-winning song, featured in the animated series 3rd & Bird, are presented with Jatkowska's smudgy, jewel-toned illustrations in the musician's first picture book. Three children—black, brown, and white—are seen spending time together and with their parents. A father with spiky, sandy hair shares breakfast with his pigtailed daughter at the kitchen table: "When you tell me that you love me,/ this is what I'm gonna say," writes Marley before a page turn shows the same pair hugging in view of a vibrant green tree where two brightly colored birds are nuzzling: I love you too, I love you too, I love you." Subsequent pages depict the children fully engaged in nature, observing friendly fish underwater, bees buzzing around their hive, love-struck earthworms, and more; seasons pass, too, bringing the birth of a new sibling for one of the children and the arrival of Christmas. The repetitiveness of the chorus makes this book a more satisfying sing-aloud than a read-aloud, but it's a sweetly affectionate ode to togetherness and love all the same. Ages 1–up.
