A perfect bedtime story for fathers and daughters
Before I tuck you in tonight,
Kiss your cheek and shut the light,
The last thing left for me to do
Is sing my Daddy's song to you.
And what a song it is! Ice-cream cones fall from the sky, foxes play baseball, reindeer ride in fancy cars, kangaroos bake birthday cakes, panda bears twirl hula hoops, and rain falls up instead of down.
The imaginative rhythmic text and evocative full-color paintings make this fun and reassuring good-night book ideal for Father's Day.
Lesléa Newman is a poet, an animal lover, and the author of many successful books for young readers. Lesléa lives in Northampton, Massachusetts.
Karen Ritz has illustrated more than forty books for young readers. She lives in St. Paul, Minnesota.
More than 150 writers from 40 events will gather in New York City for PEN World Voices Festival of International Literature, April 28 – May 4, 2014.
For its 10th anniversary, the festival celebrates those who have dared to stand ‘on the edge,’ risking their careers, and sometimes their lives, to speak out for their art and beliefs. Join us for a wide range of events, including debates, one-on-one conversations, participatory workshops and performances in venues throughout the city. Use the code PEN14 (use PEN2014 for events at The Public Theater) and receive a 20 percent discount on most events. www.worldvoicesfestival.org
