School Library Journal - 12/01/2018 PreS-Gr 1–The iconic Lennon and McCartney lyrics are brought to life in full-color art for a new generation. A bear is awakened by the sweet sound of a mother bluebird singing with her baby. The bear is so enchanted that he follows them as they fly through the countryside and into the town. As they go, more animals and even people join in the melodic and merry parade, spreading love and joy as they pass houses and cross bridges full of people that could use a little cheer. The parade ends in an explosion of color and camaraderie in a neighborhood park. A picture book for all ages, this is sure to bring a sense of happiness and well-being to all who read it. The illustrations are as inspiring as the lyrics, with bright rainbow colors, and lighthearted, animated characters. The diversity of human characters is to be appreciated, and the change of setting as the parade marches on adds interest and intrigue. VERDICT A cultural must-have for all well-rounded library collections.—Amy Shepherd, St. Anne's Episcopal School, Middleton, DE - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
