Coming soon…

December 29, 2008

I just looked through The Big Bell and the Little Bell which will be coming soon to a library near you. It’s a picture book of the 1954 Martin Kalmanoff song about a king, a big bell and a little bell. The moral of the story: “Yes, a great big bell makes a mighty sound, and a little bell just makes a tiny clink. But as you can see…Those who make the biggest noise aren’t always as important as they think.” What attracted me to the book was the music CD that accompanies is. It includes the original Julius LaRosa recording as well as a new recording. It’s a cute story and a catchy old song. Could be fun to read the story in storytime then play the song(s) accompanied by the attendees ringing bells!

*Because this is not a reading of the full text of the book, it will be cataloged as an E, not an ECD.
