When asked which of his songs he would most like to be sung 100 years from now, Pete Seeger replied, "One Grain of Sand." To bring this song to life on the page, artist Linda Wingerter painted rich, luminous scenes of families waking and sleeping all over the world--from a beach in Thailand, to a snowy pond in Scandanavia, to a high-rise apartment building in New York. The result is a gorgeous gift book for babies and families that celebrates the world's precious places and people, reflecting Seeger's lifelong commitment to social and environmental harmony. Pete Seeger wrote this Iullaby in 1956 for his daughter, Tynia, to whom this book is dedicated. When Linda Wingerter was researching this book, she discovered that her grandparents had designed several posters to advertise Pete's concerts at their local library in the 1960s.
