Over the Rainbow by Eric Puybaret (Book and Audio CD)
Take a magical journey OVER THE RAINBOW. When all the world is a hopeless jumble and the raindrops tumble all around, Heaven opens a magic lane. When all the clouds darken up the skyway, there's a rainbow highway to be found, Leading from your window pane to a place behind the sun, just a step beyond the rain. You may not immediately recognize these words--but you definitely know and love the song to which they belong.
This is the introductory verse to Over the Rainbow, sung with such memorable poignancy by Judy Garland in The Wizard of Oz. Although she actually recorded these opening lyrics, they were never used in the film. Now, this classic song has been transformed into a magnificent picture book and CD set. Breathtaking and magical artwork by Eric Puybaret will carry young readers from a little red farmhouse up over the rainbow, into the sky where bluebirds fly and castles rise high in the clouds, and beyond.The extraordinary soundtrack for this book is performed by Judy Collins, who has recorded what might be the very best version of Over the Rainbow ever sung. The winner of a Grammy Award, Collins's glorious voice is one of the most admired of the 20th and 21st centuries. Her version of this classic will delight and touch the heart of every parent and child who listens. As an added bonus, the enclosed CD also contains two delightful additional songs recorded by Judy Collins: White Choral Bells and I See the Moon.\

"My daughter loves this book. Great illustrations. My wife and I have sung this to her, and when she hears Judy Collins sing it on the included CD, she really digs it. It also knocked her out cold last night. Great for our 2-year old daughter."
"I gave this to a friends granddaughter for her third birthday. She loves it. She wants it read to her at least 10 times a day. She loves the audio too. I also gave her a Rainbow Machine for her bedroom that she wants on every night. This gift was definitely a big hit."
