Day Is Done << Prev page
Peter Yarrow
Illustrated by Melissa Sweet

How many children and adults, alike, have listened to ''Day Is Done'' over the years and truly felt that all was well, that they were safe and loved? When Peter, Paul and Mary sang this song years ago, thousands of us found comfort in the words and have since sung the song to our children. It simply has to be one of the most tender songs to have come out of the 60s. All that is gentle and reassuring about this song comes to life in the book.

A mother bear, father deer, and other wild creatures reassure their young ones that they are protected and are not alone. Acknowledging fears and troubles that may have clouded the day, the animal parents tell their children, ''But if you take my hand, my son, All will be well when the day is done...''

At book's end we see the animal families getting ready for sleep, while through a bedroom window we see a father asking his son, ''Tell me why you're smiling, my son. Is there a secret you can tell everyone? Do you know more than those that are wise? Can you see what we all disguise through your loving eyes?'' (Wait until you hear this sung on the accompanying CD!)

A tender tribute to the kinship of all, the innocent wisdom of a child's heart, a parent's love, and more, Day Is Done is a very, very special book. Cheery and colorful illustrations add to the book's heartfelt spirit. With a CD containing the title song (sung by Peter and Bethany Yarrow), as well as ''I Know Where I'm Going'' and ''Dona Dona Dona'' (both traditional songs with new words), this will be a family favorite for years.
