A Child's Good Morning Book Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's time to wake up!

Roosters are crowing,

rabbits are nibbling,

flowers are opening,

bees are buzzing.

How will you start your morning? Join four special little ones as they awaken with the warm rising sun. You, too, can glide gently into the morning with rousing text by Margaret Wise Brown and vibrant illustrations by Karen Katz. Originally published in 1952, this book will inspire all of us to celebrate the wonder and possibility that comes with the dawning of each new day.

Review:

"Katz's (Princess Baby) nursery patchwork quilt approach is a far cry from the Jean Charlot illustrations originally paired with Brown's (Goodnight Moon) text back in 1952 (the book was created as a companion to the Caldecott Honor title A Child's Good Night Book). 'A squirrel pops out of his hole in the tree. Who woke me up? The sun! The sun is up!' announces a typical spread. Katz turns on the twee faucet: she shows a cutest-ever baby playing peek-a-boo with a blanket while birdies, bunnies and a dozing horsey (with a silver-white mane) array themselves about the smiling squirrel's tree. Katz's legions of fans will certainly rejoice to see her signature kewpie doll — like characters cavorting to the words of the grande dame. But those who love Brown for her honesty and directness may just shake their heads. Ages 4 — 8." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

About the Author

Margaret Wise Brown transformed the landscape of children's literature with such beloved classics as Goodnight Moonand The Runaway Bunny. Other perennial favorites are Big Red Barn, Christmas in the Barn, and The Noisy Book. Her "here and now" style has been an enormous influence on writers for the past half century.

Muy pocos escritores de literatura infantil han logrado captar las emociones e inquietudes de la niÑez como Margaret Wise Brown (1910-1952). Sus numerosos y ya clÁsicos libros y grabaciones continÚan deleitando a lectores y oyentes de todas las edades.
