Sarah’s Song by Rosie J. Pova is the delightful story of Sarah, a little girl who loves to sing and dance with her grandma. Both of them spin and chant through the living room, skip and croon at the park, and whistle and wade through fields of wild flowers. Her grandma is slowly becoming more and more tired and uses a cane to walk. She enjoys the yearly tradition of dancing at the Fall Festival. Sarah is searching for that perfect song so that her grandma can sing and dance with her all over again. Grandma claps and rocks in her chair when Sarah sings, but she does not sing or dance with Sarah, no matter how much she tries. Will Sarah be able to find that perfect song so that her grandma sings and dances again?

It is a beautiful story of bonding between a child and her grandmother. It is also a story of learning to accept the changes in life and perseverance. The illustrations are adorable and they capture the essence of the bonding between Sarah and her grandma beautifully. They also bring the characters alive and make the scenes vivid. It is a good bedtime storybook to read to children and can be used for interactive sessions in classrooms because of the message it conveys. The story and the illustrations are poignant and affectionate, and Sarah’s character and the feelings she has for her grandma are real and relatable. The special relationship shared between Sarah and her grandma is tangible to young readers throughout the story.
