Synopses & Reviews
A child's cheerful ode to the morning.
Good morning, eyes.
Good morning, nose.
Good morning, fingers.
There you are toes.
A little boy wakes up early one morning and begins to greet all the things in his bedroom, from his teddy bear to his clock. As the sun rises higher and higher, so does the boy's joy, culminating in an exuberant "Good morning, good morning!" As the door slowly opens, he runs into his father's loving arms.
Morning Song's lyrical, simple verse and luminous illustrations will make every child look forward to greeting the new day.
