A family gets ready to greet a new baby
As a father helps his children get ready for school, the busy sounds of day unfold:
Bus honks and bells,
Dishes and shoes,
Whirring of tires and
Crackle of news . . .
Then night falls and the sounds are different:
Slapping leaves on
Windowpane . . .
But this is no ordinary day – or night. Listening to the clock tick, this family is waiting for something exciting to happen – and it does, when a new baby arrives.
Rich, playful paintings combine with lyrical language to tell a warm, vibrant story of family.

Two poems present the sounds of day and the sounds of night, from a clatter of soapsuds and spatter to the hush of snowflakes touching on the ground.
