'Good Vibrations: A Children's Picture Book'
By: Mike Love and Brian Wilson & Paul Hoppe - Lyric Pop/Akashic Books, $16.95

Description: 'Good Vibrations: A Children's Picture Book' uses Mike Love and Brian Wilson’s world-famous song, here gloriously illustrated by Paul Hoppe, with the hope that it will bring smiles to the faces of children and parents alike.

Verdict: Targeted at an age range of 5-7 year-old's and running at a lush 32 pages, these magnificent, colorful, vibrantly illustrated and harmoniously told (through Beach Boy lyrics) stories are presented in 8.5"x8.5" glossy hardback books.

Featuring lyrics from songs that you would normally only ever hear on the radio, or coming out of the speakers of a record player (or, these days, computer, iPhone, etc.), each song (within the series) is a pocket of storytelling that spring forth to enlighten the mind or embrace the heart.

Here within 'Good Vibrations: A Children's Picture Book,' this lively, oh-so colorful and vibrant book based on Mike Love and Brian Wilson’s number one hit (about absorbing positive energy from the people around them) is, quite easily, one of the most welcoming and joyous kids story books that I've come across in a long time.

Often praised as one of the most important compositions in rock, the Beach Boys’ original version of this song was their third number one Billboard hit.

With lyrics by Brian Wilson and Mike Love, and illustrations by Paul Hoppe, this picture book follows a girl and her dog as they make their way down to the beach, sharing good vibrations all along the way!

Parents and children alike can share and enjoy one of rock’s greatest hits through the colorful pages of Good Vibrations, of that you can take my word, but that said, when the lyrics are such as "I love the colorful clothes she wears / And the way the sunlight plays upon her hair,” well, you know you're in for a spectacular visual showcase.
