Day is Done by Peter Yarrow, illustrated by Melissa Sweet
This book takes the text of Peter Yarrow's song "Day is Done" and provides beautiful illustrations featuring woodland animals and a little boy with his father.
The book contains a CD with the song, as well as two other songs written by Peter Yarrow.
What I Thought:
What a sweet book! I love how the text of book is a song, and even more so...the text is so poignant. Focusing on relationships and taking care of our environment, the book helps us see what is really important.
The illustrations are lovely cartoon-like featuring lots of animals (father/son relationships) and are done with bright colors.
A great book to share.
