Read-Along, Sing-Along Collection
This gorgeously illustrated original bedtime story captures the prairies at dusk, evoking sounds of wind and crickets, with scenes in mottled reds and oranges.
The narrated story is followed by recordings of the songs “Prairie Lullaby” and “Dream Baby – L’enfant des rêves”.
Connie Kaldor is “one of Canada’s most significant contemporary folk performers” (Billboard Magazine). Her song, “Wood River” is considered by many to be the quintessential Prairie song. In 2007, she was appointed to the Order of Canada.
Carmen Campagne is an educator and singer-songwriter that was nicknamed “the Daycare Diva” in the height of her career in French-speaking Canada. She has sold more than a million records and videos and is a four-time winner of a Félix Award. In 2014, she was appointed to the Order of Canada.
Brian Deines is an acclaimed children’s book illustrator who has been nominated for the Governor General’s Award for Illustration, the Ruth and Sylvia Schwartz Award and the Lillian Shepherd Memorial Award, among others. He has illustrated such varied titles as The Hockey Tree, On a Snowy Night and The Road to Afghanistan.
