Product description

As a little girl walks to catch the school bus on a dark and windy winter morning, she finds that by singing, the woods aren't as scary, the walk isn't as long and the wind isn't as cold.

It's a windy winter morning in Singing Away the Dark, and a little girl has to walk a mile to catch the school bus. Along the way she faces wire gates, dark shadowy woods, a bull grazing with the cattle, and wickedly cold wind. Will she be able to sing her way through the dark morning?

Lilting rhyming text and stunning paintings herald an era when singing away the dark was part of a six-year-old's rural school-going routine.
