What people are saying…

Critical praise for I Love You Too by Ziggy Marley:

“A sweetly affectionate ode to togetherness and love.”
Publishers Weekly

“Lyrics inspired by an exchange with Marley’s 3-year-old daughter are set to bright paintings of a multicultural cast of children and adults enjoying each other’s company indoors and out . . . The art will draw and hold young children’s attention.”
Kirkus Reviews

“Sure to be a hit at bedtime, the lyrical story conveys the sweet, soothing, and affirming message.”
School Library Journal

“The emphasis of this book is that love has no boundaries.”
New York Journal of Books

“Music Is in Everything”—a single on More Family Time, the follow-up children’s album to the GRAMMY Award–winning Family Time—celebrates how music is found in everything. From ocean waves to banging pots and pans in the kitchen, from a loved one’s laughter to the “river’s latest tune,” Marley reminds children everywhere that you don’t need an instrument to create a beautiful song.

With heartfelt illustrations by Ag Jatkowska—illustrator of Marley’s debut picture book, I Love You Too—Music Is in Everything is a sweet and uplifting ode to the power and beauty of song.
