It is the rarest of all nights: a total eclipse of the Moon on Winter Solstice. The Longest, Darkest Night! is a children’s story about the wonders of nature, celestial cycles and the “humanness” of animals. Fear of the dark and the unknown, collaboration, generosity and the wisdom of elders are underlying themes in this modern fable. The story is an inclusive and action-packed listening experience, with rich images and sing-along interactivity, offering even more personal engagement. Some forest creatures are more than a little frightened. Luckily, they live near kindly Grampa Cedar, a wise old storyteller who has seen it all before. Weaving the magic and mystery of nature with reassuring science, he guides his nocturnal neighbors — Brother Fox, Mrs. Owl, Young Weasel, Madam Opossum and Mr. Raccoon — through a night they’ll remember forever. Original winter fable beautifully illustrated by Leslie W. Lepere. This Audiobook is producd like a radio play with original music, sound effects and multiple actors. Extensive scientific back matter song lyrics and coloring pages in accompanying PDF.
