Project Description

In The Night Still Dark

By Richard Lewis
Illustrated by Ed Young
Atheneum, 1988

A lyrical adaptation from the traditional Hawaiian creation chant, the Kumulipo, recited over a newborn child in the belief that its recitation helps bond that new life to all other living things. With brilliant illustrations by Caldecott winner Ed Young, this book is a poetic evocation of the dawn of life, with its abundance of new creatures and plant life.
