Fluffy clouds, butterflies, furry bunnies, and life from a bug's-eye view: This stunning sequel to the New York Times bestseller Goodnight Songs celebrates the beauty and wonder of nature all year long. Once again, a treasure trove of Margaret Wise Brown's newly uncovered verses receives loving treatment from 12 award-winning artists, including Floyd Cooper, Peter Brown, David Small, Molly Idle, and Bob Staake. From a little bear singing one morning in May to a soft snowfall, mysterious, deep, and glowing, each song is magical.
An accompanying CD, with lilting songs beautifully composed and sung by Emily Gary and Tom Proutt, makes this the perfect gift for children. LIKE Goodnight Songs on Facebook.
There was a cat - a magic cat
Who was so small, so small
That he was no bigger than a pussy willow!
He used a ladybug for a pillow
And on moonlite nights
In the early spring
When the peepers peep
You would hear him sing,
On bright moonlite nights
In the soft early spring.
I haven't had a chance to review the first Goodnight Songs book, but I really like this one. I like that when we aren't listening to the CD in the truck or in our home, we can sing the songs and read the words with the book. We love music in our home. We listen to it and dance to it as much as possible. My girls were dancing around the living room when I put on "The Song of the Tiny Cat." They love it, and so do I. I recommend this book and CD for children ages two and up, and for grown ups too! Goodnight Songs: A Celebration of the Seasons book and CD would make a perfect Gift for the Holidays or for any time really!
