It's a cold, windy winter morning and a little girl has to walk a mile to catch the school bus. Along the way, she faces wire gates, dark shadowy woods, a bull grazing with the cattle and many other scary things. Will she be able to sing her way through the dark morning? Lilting rhyming text by Caroline Woodward and stunning artwork by Julie Morstad complement each other perfectly in this whimsical, nostalgic story, creating the look and feel of a classic picture book.
