Tomorrow is a Chance to Start Over
Story, songs and illustrations by Hilary Grist
Ira and Isabelle, who live in a tiny red house by the sea, decide one night to escape the sound of the city’s beeping cars and sail off to a faraway land where they learn from a new friend—a robin with a soft voice—that dreams really can come true. The book contains an audio CD that features the narrated story as well as 10 original heartwarming dream songs, and an exquisite rendition of Johannes Brahms’ classic “Cradle Song.”
