About the Author

Composer Harold Arlen and lyricist E.Y. Harburg were two of Broadway and Hollywood’s most popular songwriters. They wrote the songs for the classic film The Wizard of Oz, for which they won an Academy Award®. Judy Collins has thrilled audiences worldwide for nearly five decades with her magnificent voice and thoughtful interpretations. Many of Collins’s albums have been certified platinum and her version of Joni Mitchell’s "Both Sides Now" has been entered into the Grammy Hall of Fame. Her rendition of Stephen Sondheim’s "Send in the Clowns" won Grammy’s Song of the Year in 1975. Judy's film about Antonia Brico, co-directed by Jill Godmillow, was nominated for an Academy Award in 1974. Brico was Judy's classical piano teacher when she was young and was the first woman to conduct major symphonies around the world. In 2000, Judy founded her own record label, Wildflower Records. In 2010 she enjoyed two huge successes with the New York Times best-selling picture books and CD version of OVER THE RAINBOW, illustrated by Eric Puybaret, and her latest album, Paradise, a collection of ten songs, including duets with Stephen Stills and Joan Baez.

Beautifully illustrated, and accompanied with a CD of three songs sung by Judy Collins, this book will re-introduce this song to a new generation of children. Especially thrilling is to read and hear the beginning of the original song, not commonly known since it did not appear in The Wizard of Oz. A beautiful gift for any child to inspire dreams...

My teen years were filled with the beautiful inspiration of Judy Collins' voice - and she still has it! And who doesn't love the hopeful outlook of Yip Harburg's lyrics? If you want to share a beautiful female voice singing words of hope with the new generation, the is the book and recording for you. I bought 1 for myself and 1 for my cousin's granddaughters. I look forward to buying more for young people, as they come into my life.

Oh, this book is so beautiful -- all about yearning and wishing to be free... to be somewhere over the rainbow. I loved this film so much and Judy Garland so much. I didn't know I loved Maxfield Parrish so much. These paintings seem as if they were painted for this song and I know they weren't. This is a gift that I will give many times, I suspect. The reproductions are also so beautiful. I guess you could call it an artbook.
