Synopsis

Day is Done by Peter Yarrow

This is a picture book version of a beautiful song from Peter Yarrow, author of the bestselling Puff, the Magic Dragon . It was number 1 on the US Publishers Weekly Children's Picture Book Bestsellers list for October 09. It is aimed at children age 3 to 7 years old. Peter Yarrow follows the blockbuster success of Puff, the Magic Dragon with a picture book version of his beautiful song, Day Is Done. As night falls, animal and human parents everywhere tenderly tuck their children into bed. In the darkness, each child - raccoon, doe, rabbit, field mouse and a little boy - wonders: Will I be safe? Will you be there for me? And every mummy and daddy responds with the comforting words of Yarrow's refrain: 'I am here'. Caldecott Honor-winning artist Melissa Sweet has created gorgeous images that celebrate the loving bond between parent and child, as well as the connection between all creatures of the earth.
