    A Black girl in red Converse holds a large acoustic guitar and sits beside this book's opening words: "I can hear change humming / In its loudest, proudest song. / I don't fear change coming, / And so I sing along." In front of a beautiful, stained glass-like mural of Martin Luther King, Jr., she meets a white boy in a yarmulke, carrying a tuba. The two pair up and begin performing acts of community service, such as picking up litter and feeding the hungry, accompanied by poet Gorman's rhyming couplets, which are uplifting, inspiring, and refined. Long's stunning artwork, realistically rendered in acrylics and colored pencil, makes expert use of white space, rich colors, light, and shadow, as spreads alternate between placing figures against white backgrounds and displaying full-color scenes that span two pages. The positive messaging speaks to building bridges rather than walls and embracing differences, and with each new child encountered, the girl hands them an instrument, inviting them to take up the song. A lovely and loving call to action and kindness. Grades K-3. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
