A picture book version of the Peter, Paul & Mary song The Day is Done. As night falls, animal and human parents everywhere tenderly tuck their children into bed. In the darkness, each child -- raccoon, doe, rabbit, field mouse, and a little boy -- wonders: "Will I be safe?" and "Will you be there for me?" Naturally, every mommy and daddy responds with the comforting words of Yarrow's refrain: "I am here."
Caldecott Honor-winning artist Melissa Sweet has created georgeous images that celebrate the loving bond between parent and childe, as well as the connection between all creatures of the earth.
