About the Author

An eight-time GRAMMY Award winner, Emmy Award winner, author, philanthropist, and reggae icon, Ziggy Marley has released thirteen albums to much critical acclaim. His early immersion in music came at age ten when he sat in on recording sessions with his father, Bob Marley. Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers released eight best-selling albums that garnered three GRAMMYs. Ziggy's second solo release, Love Is My Religion, won a GRAMMY in 2006 for Best Reggae Album. His third solo studio album, Family Time, scored a fifth GRAMMY award for Best Children's Album. 2016 marked the release of Marley's self-titled album, which garnered his eighth GRAMMY. Marley's new children's album, More Family Time, will be released in September 2020 via Tuff Gong Worldwide.

Reviews

Some songs do not make the transition to picture books; this one elevates the form. A beautiful addition to any library.-- "School Library Journal"
Readers are encouraged to find the music in everything in this picture-book adaptation of Marley's exuberant song . . . The illustration of the family's large and small clapping hands in a spectrum of skin tones sends a powerful, uplifting message about the universality of music . . . Close your eyes, listen to the music, and experience the joy of family with this buoyant tale.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Praise for I Love You Too, a previous children's picture book by Ziggy Marley based on a song of his with the same name:

"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

"This looks to be on our home charts for weeks, months, maybe even years." --Austin Chronicle

"An inspiring storybook edition of the lyrics of famous reggae performer Ziggy Marley . . . song lyrics are surrounded and set in warm, vivid illustrations of children of many hues, laughing and playing with loving parents and grandparents in a healthy, light, balanced natural world." --Midwest Book Review

"Orly Marley, 42, adores the tale husband Ziggy wrote for daughter Judah, 9." --Us Weekly,"Objects of Affection" mention
