Nighttime Symphony

LIST PRICE £7.99

About The Book

As a child readies for bed, the sounds of his family echo around him, soothing him to sleep. The steady beat of cars passing on the street outside and raindrops falling onto the roof above punctuate a rhythm created by the shouts of uncles over a barbecue, the clink of dishes washed by cousins, and a grandfather’s booming laughter. It all blends together to form the soundtrack of a child’s life—a soundtrack of love.

A musical read-aloud that tenderly captures the comforts of a loving home and family, Nighttime Symphony is as contemporary as it is timeless.

* “Sophisticated. . . . Brilliant golds, slate grays, and bright vermilion show passersby, a parade of umbrellas, and an elegant cityscape, and the sleek aesthetic gives the city’s wet streets and glowing windows all the surprising glamor of a thumping storm."
