The song of the nightingale  Cover Image Book Book

The song of the nightingale

Landman, Tanya (author.). Carlin, Laura, (illustrator.).

Summary: "How did the nightingale get its golden voice? A beautiful creation story answers the question. The mountains, trees, and plants are young and full of color, but the animals are dull and drab, so the painter gets to work. She dabs dots on ladybugs and spots on butterflies, stripes on zebras and pentagons on giraffes. Finally, she comes to the very last creature--a patient beetle--and uses her special pot of gold paint. The painter is about to pack up to go home when a little gray bird flies out of the forest. The paint box is empty, but on the tip of the painter's brush remains a tiny bit of gold, which she drops at the back of the bird's throat. And when the painter asks the bird to sing, golden notes tumble from its beak. This timeless tale, with its stylish and striking illustrations, will appeal to children and adults alike."--
