More About the Author

Gerald Hausman is the author of more than 70 books. His live storytelling has been praised by the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, History Channel, and the Bank Street College of Education. He and his wife have received numerous awards in the field of children's literature.

"As a writer I have often been called a scribe. This is because in the gathering of oral tales, I have always tried to get the story right. To capture the flavor, the region and the moral as the original storyteller gave it to me. The NYT Book Review called my collection of American Indian stories, Tunkashila 'an eloquent tribute to the first great storytellers of America.'"

In addition to his 22 years of story gathering and telling in New Mexico, Gerald also spent 13 summers on the island of Jamaica where he ran an informal writing school with his wife, Lorry. Together they collected Anansi stories, stories from and about the Kebra Nagast, and traditional West Indian ghost stories.

"I remember when History Channel filmed tales from my book "Duppy Talk". My best friend Roy was not an actor, but because of his handsome face he was cast as the man who was enchanted by a mermaid. When I saw him on film, I asked Roy how he was able to do the underwater scene and keep that look of astonishment when he saw the made-up mermaid smiling on the river bank. He told me, 'That look on my face comes from the fact I can't swim. I was very scared.'"

Gerald teaches writing workshops in various parts of the United States and is most recently the author of "The American Storybag" -- 40 years of story gathering on and off the road. He lives on a barrier island in Florida.

What a superb little book! This children's book works as a cheerful, peaceful message to a youngster and a bit of a relaxation technique for the parent reading it aloud. The artwork is bright and multifaceted; fitting in just fine with the 'touches' of Bob Marley's words. Well worth the money and well worth your time, indeed.

The book was much smaller than expected, I purchased book to complete the series of children books previously written by Cedella Marley and assumed that this book would be the same size. Other than that it is well written and as expected and my children love this book, the book is based on Bob Marley's song.

I think it is a great adaptation from his lyrics and tells a good story. It's short and an easy read for little ones.

One Love.

My granddaughters loved the book, as soon as my son started to read them the book they knew it was Bob Marley. Good price and arrived on time. Tried to order from Bob Marley website three times, they were always out of stock

I WAS VERY DISAPPOINTED WHEN I RECEIVED THIS BOOK. I HAD BOUGHT "ONE LOVE" WHICH IS A VERY GOOD BOOK. WITH SHIPPING I PAID 19.00 FOR A BOARD BOOK. I THOUGHT AT FIRST I DID NOT LOOK AT THE LISTING CORRECTLY BUT AFTER LOOKING AGAIN I WAS WRONG. THIS LISTING DOES NOT STATE THAT IT IS A BOARD BOOK. I SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT "EVERYTHING IS GONNA BE ALRIGHT", WHICH IS COMPARABLE TO "ONE LOVE".

My baby hasn't even been born yet, but I couldn't pass up getting this book as soon as I saw it. I read through it as soon as it arrived and was already singing the words to myself. The words aren't the exact lyrics from the song, but the message is the same. I can't wait to read and sing it to my daughter. Such a positive book from one of the most inspiring people to ever live.

What a charming, colorful and exceedingly happy book. It became a family favorite and I have ordered another copy for a family member who lives out of town. Children and adults are equally delighted by this treasure. My son said it will keep his copy on his desk !

From page to stage, my children enjoy knowing and reading the books first - if we are going to watch the play. So I bought this and a bunch of other Marley books and enjoying them with my five year olds.
