Introducing One Love, the New Children’s Book by Cedella Marley

Introducing One Love, the New Children’s Book by Cedella Marley

Like the good and doting uncle that I am, I’m already getting excited for my new nephew’s first Christmas later this year! Yes, I know it’s still summer, but I can’t help it. I mean, have you seen him? Super cute, right? If you ever get to meet him, though, you’ll see quickly that good looks are just the half of it. Trinidad, like the island for which he was named, is just plain awesome.

So, what awesome gift will this awesome young man be receiving from his favorite uncle for his very first Christmas?

First off, I want to be sure to spoil him really good, so he should expect to see more than one box bearing Fort Lauderdale post marks under his tree.

Secondly, you just know a few of these gifts will have to carry some sort of Caribbean theme, right?

That said, I’m starting my Christmas shopping with the item previewed in the video above…

One Love is a soon-to-be-released children’s book adapted from the popular Bob Marley song of the same name. Here’s the product description from Amazon.com:

Adapted from one of Bob Marley s most beloved songs, One Love brings the joyful spirit and unforgettable lyrics of his music to life for a new generation. Readers will delight in dancing to the beat and feeling the positive groove of change when one girl enlists her community to help transform her neighborhood for the better. Adapted by Cedella Marley, Bob Marley s first child, and gorgeously illustrated by Vanessa Newton, this heartwarming picture book offers an upbeat testament to the amazing things that can happen when we all get together with one love in our hearts.

Sounds about perfect for the newest Bennett Boy, who already has a love for sailing through the Grenadines, chillin’ in St. Martin and dancing to a reggae beat.

    Oh my goodness I just love your blog. The post is wonderful!  I’m the illustrator and I can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on this project. Cedella has done a wonderful job taking her Dad’s song and making it her own and bringing it to a new generation of children.  It truly is all about ONE LOVE!

      Great to hear from the illustrator! The visuals have a great style.

      We’re also looking forward to getting our hands on the book to read to our youngest Bennett boy. Glad you like the site! Thanks so much!
