Description

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 childraccoon, doe, rabbit, field mouse, and a little boywonders: Will I be safe? Will you be there for me? And every mommy 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.
