Not Just a Book


This is ‘Not Just a Book‘. ‘It can swat away a fly/ Or hide your face if you are shy’. Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross suggest a myriad of uses for a book, culminating in the loud-hailed statement, ‘A book is more than words and ink’.

We see the book on the table, at the seaside, outside, in the bedroom. This book travels wherever the reader goes! It is a constant companion. As she concludes, ‘The very best thing a book can do/ Is to be read and loved by you…’

A testimony to the power of words, the magic of reading, the importance of books in our lives, ‘Not Just a Book‘ is an amusing, broad stroked, song. Bookwagon recommends ‘Not Just a Book‘ to every household and every classroom. A must!
