The Big Bell and the Little Bell
Words and Music by Martin Kalmanoff
Illustrated by Alastair Graham

A wonderful book with a relevant message, “Those who make the biggest noise aren’t always as important as they think,” in this time of horrible loud mouth politicians honking about their reviling drivel.  Some might dismiss a song in a picture book, but it has something important to say.
