Day is Done

Fall 2010 CD with Book
Ages: 3 - 7 yrs.
Author: Peter Yarrow
Illustrator: Melissa Sweet
CD Price: $16.95
Tenderness warms this beautifully illustrated offering, a rendering in picture book form of the poignant song by Peter Yarrow that he sang in many concerts as part of the Peter, Paul and Mary folk trio (Peter Yarrow, Noel Paul Stookey and the late Mary Travers).

Animal and human parents comfort and reassure their offspring that no matter what, "all will be well when the day is done." In vivid watercolor and mixed media illustrations, Caldecott Honor artist Melissa Sweet portrays an underlying message of a child's innocence and the interconnectedness of all living things. The CD features the original song and two complementary tracks with Yarrow and his daughter, Bethany Yarrow, a professional singer.
