Based loosely on the Comden & Green song "I Say Good Morning to the Sun," jaunty verse takes readers to different landscapes in which a small boy is saying so many "good morning"'s that by the time he is done, it's time to say "goodnight " All are rendered in Barroux's signature droll and endearing style.
