Book review: Sing Gabriel Sing by Jayni Tremainey


⭐⭐ out of 5


This is a good little book, in theory, but it doesn't meet the industry standard of 28 or 32 pages and there are only 6 unique pages of words that aren't either just the chorus or images.

It's a unique idea, just with very few unique pages.  It's more for the adult than the child and doesn't get going for 3 pages at the start then ends with a music score that a small child would get so confused by.

The author also uses words that a small child would no way understand... did you understand words like carpenter, lovely and crib when you were 3 years old?  I know I wouldn't have and that's just on one page!  Beautiful and foretold are also in the chorus that a small child would just give up on.

It's just too mature for a picture book listener is all... sorry.
