Review of "What A Wonderful World," by George David Weiss and Bob Thiele

Review of

What A Wonderful World, by George David Weiss and Bob Thiele ISBN 0439207460

Five out of five stars

 The text of this book is the lyrics of the song “What A Wonderful Word,” made famous by the great Louis Armstrong. It is a message of togetherness and the essential oneness of the human species. While there are many children in the images, the star is of course the great Satchmo, he appears in many of the images, mostly as a secondary character.

 There are indeed trees of green, red roses, clouds of white and many animals resting comfortably in the wild. The inclusion of animals is an emphasis that humans share the planet with the other life forms that have their needs if they are to survive as a species. Colorful without being overwhelming, the images are very well done and are an excellent complement to one of the best brotherhood songs of all time.
