"I wonder, then, what freedom is. Is it a place? Is it a thought? Can it be stolen? Can it be bought?"
As powerful as it is beautiful, Freedom, We Sing is a lyrical picture book designed to inspire and give hope to readers around the world. Molly Mendoza's immersive, lush illustrations invite kids to ponder singer/songwriter Amyra León's poem about what it means to be free. It's the perfect book for parents who want a way to gently start the conversation with their kids about finding hope in these very tense times we are living in.
Amyra León is musician, performer, and poet from New York City. She has collaborated and performed for the BBC, Roundhouse, Amnesty International, and many more. An alumna of the Nuyorican Slam Team, Amy fuses music and poetry through powerfully transparent performances focusing on social inequalities and celebrating love, blackness, and what it means to be woman.
