New Children's Books by Kate Endle and Caspar Baby Pants - Review

Books are a big deal in our house. Every night we pick a special story to read before bed, so we like to have a nice variety. I was recently given the opportunity to check out two new children's books from Kate Endle and Caspar Babypants. These two stories, My Woodland Wish and Bunny Rabbit in the Sunlight, combine the world's of art and music and turn them into books. They are truly beautiful.

Children's musician Chris Ballew (or Caspar Babypants) and his wife Kate Endle announce their unique collaboration on two new children's books.  My Woodland Wish is a beautiful picture book, filled with Endle’s charming paper collage art and a free MP3 of the book’s song performed by Caspar Babypants. The couple enjoyed the fruits of their collaboration so much, they went on to create several other “books in song”; Bunny Rabbit in the Sunlight, a board book, is the second of their books to be released.

My Woodland Wish takes you on an adventure through nature. You get to visit with different critters and creatures and tell them what your wish for them is. This story is began as a song, that is included with the book as an MP3, which was then expanded into a story. It rhymes and flows, keeping event he youngest listener interested. And then add to it the beautiful collage illustrations and you have a book to treasure for years to come!


Bunny Rabbit in the Sunlight is based on a Caspar Babypants lullaby. On each page you meet a new animal enjoying some type of light. Sunlight, fire, a shimmering pond. It's a cute board book with Kate Endles fabulous illustrations. My daughter keeps this one her shelf in her playroom and loves to point out the animals and the sun. It's helping me to teach her new words, too! This book also come with a free download of an MP3 of the song.
