It is so encouraging when people use their artistic talents to promote the sanctity of human life. They lift us up with their artistry, enabling us to view the life issues in a new and exciting way.
Therefore, I was thrilled when an electronic version of a new children’s book celebrating life arrived in my email inbox. The book is entitled, “I Can Hear Music” and features a cover with a preborn baby listening to an entertaining melody as the little one rests comfortably in the mother’s womb.
Gifted author Brendan Lyons and enterprising illustrator Missy Johnson have come up with a winning strategy for teaching children the basics of development of an unborn baby.
The rhyming text is catchy and clever and makes the creators’ points well:
“Music is everywhere.
It helps us to thrive.
It’s one of the best parts of being alive.
“Safe in your womb, I can hear music, too.
And the very first songs I hear come from you.”
The book showcases the preborn child’s humanity and shows how the baby can interact with the environment that surrounds him or her. The message is clear: If a preborn baby can hear music, the child must be very much alive and worthy of protection.
Preschoolers will be a captive audience for this book, which treats the preborn child with an abundance of dignity and respect.
