A nightly routine becomes a gentle ritual in this special bedtime story.

When evening comes, a little girl asks her mother, Will you sing the dark tonight?"

With that request, mother and daughter begin a unique ritual. Nightgown is pulled on, teeth are brushed, face is washed and hair tangles are carefully smoothed. Then, hand in hand, mother and daughter go out into the garden to welcome the night. While crickets call out and dew falls, Mother sings a song to the coming dark. And as her daughter joins in, they watch the black night settle around them. At last the song is over and it's time for bed.

This enchanting story is an ideal bedtime book. The gently rhythmic text is matched by gorgeous watercolor paintings, filled with the delicate hues of an approaching night. The result is a story that should be a welcome addition to any bedtime routine."
