Leave Your Sleep
This collection of classic children's poetry, adapted to music by Natalie Merchant, opens the door to a wondrous world filled with witches and fearless girls, blind men and elephants, giants and sailors and dancing bears. Leave Your Sleep features a daring and delightful selection, ranging from the beloved (e.e. cummings, Edward Lear, and Jack Prelutsky) to the undiscovered (the young Nathalia Crane). Natalie Merchant's brilliant musical renderings, selected from her highly praised album, share the stage with Barbara McClintock's richly imagined art to create a memorable reading, looking, and listening experience.

This collection of children's poetry is not simply repackaged by popular singer-songwriter Natalie Merchant. Instead, it is re-envisioned and beautiful illustrated by Barbara McClintock, which adds imagination and whimsy to each of these already rich poems. Ages 8 and up. Read full review
