06 Mar New Margaret Wise Brown Book
Goodnight Songs is a collection of newly discovered lyrical poems by the legendary children’s author, Margaret Wise Brown—the author of Goodnight Moon. If that wasn’t amazing enough, each of the 12 poems is paired with a different award-winning children’s book illustrator. A few of these artists are: Jonathan Bean, Carin Berger, Melissa Sweet, Christopher Silas Neal, and Isabel Roxas. Here’s the complete list:
The book’s origin has an amazing story to go with it too. Editor, Amy Gary, of Sterling Children’s Books found these poems in a trunk in Brown’s sister’s barn. They were written in the last year of Brown’s life while she was traveling France for a book tour. WOW! What a find!
Pre-schoolers and Kindergardeners will delight in the rhyming language and double-page spread illustrations. Adult readers will love the packaging and the back story that allowed this book to be created.
Goodnight Songs would make a wonderful baby shower gift too!
