More About Eleanor Farjeon & Tim Ladwig
Eleanor Farjeon (1881-1965) grew up in England in a house filled with books, and she and her brothers enjoyed reading stories to one another and writing their own. In America, Farjeon s best-known work may be the hymn Morning Has Broken, later recorded by Cat Stevens, but in her native country she is beloved as the author of "Elsie Piddock Skips in her Sleep," "Martin Pippin in the Apple Orchard," and, of course, "The Little Bookroom." Farjeon was pleased when "The Little Bookroom" won the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Award and the Carnegie Medal, but she turned down another honor Dame of the British Empire explaining that she did not wish to become different from the milkman. At her death, the Children s Book Circle established the Eleanor Farjeon Award in her honor."
Eleanor Farjeon was born in 1881 and died in 1965.

Stunning pictures Feb 26, 2006
What a beautiful book! This book has great illustrations to go along with the song "Morning has Broken" My little one likes to find the bird in every picture. Sometimes I'll just read the words and sometimes I'll sing the song. Either way, she enjoys hearing it and taking in the vivid pictures. I actually picked up this book before I had children because I fell in love with the pictures. While your child may not understand the depth of the words, the illustations will delight them.
Music to Live By Dec 5, 1998
This book is an inspiration for children and adults alike. The deep Christian message of this beautifully illustrated book will stir the innermost spirit of those willing to consider it's message. My two year old daughter loves to sing along with the ancient yet familiar gaelic melody popularized by Cat Stevens in the 1970's. Revisit a familiar melody and reconsider the profound meaning of the text while you delight you children with this wonderful book. A real keepsake for those fortunate enough to have found it!
