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.
Harriet Ziefert is an author, publisher, packager, early reading expert, teacher, and wearer of many other hats worn in service of offering books for kids that take them from infancy to independent reading.
Barroux studied photography, art, sculpture, and architecture at the famed École Estienne and École Boule, then worked as an art director in Paris and Montreal. He eventually returned to Paris and now creates his art in a fantastical studio in an abandoned building he shares with other artists.
