The extraordinary soundtrack for this book is performed by Judy Collins, who has recorded what might be the very best version of "Over the Rainbow" ever sung. The winner of a Grammy Award, Collins' glorious voice is one of the most admired of the 20th and 21st centuries. Her version of this classic will delight and touch the heart of every parent and child who listens. As an added bonus, the enclosed CD also contains two delightful additional songs recorded by Judy Collins: "White Choral Bells" and "I See the Moon.



About the Author
Judy Collins' voice has been described as "liquid silver." Its uniqueness allows her to sing the songs of a disparate range of artists -- from Leonard Cohen and Dylan to Brecht and Weill, to her own compositions -- with equal authenticity. Her early musical studies led her from Denver to New York and to the eclectic musical style that has become her trademark. Judy's thirty albums have sold millions of copies and been certified gold and platinum. Her musical talents continue to enchant a growing following worldwide. A voice for civil rights throughout her life, Judy also produced and codirected an Academy Award-nominated documentary, "Antonia: A Portrait of the Woman, " about her first music teacher, the pioneering orchestral conductor Antonia Brica. Judy is also the author of three previous books: her autobiography, "Trust Your Heart, " the story of a spiritual quest, "Amazing Grace, " and "Shameless, " a novel.Composer Harold Arlen and lyricist E.Y.
