"Paxton's original lullaby-cum-folksong sings of woodland animals and pets, birds, fish, and children setting down to sleep. The brief refrain wishes a good night to each....Very young children will delight in hearing the words as they take in the reassuring illustrations....Lovely new bedtime fare for families to share."--School Library Journal.

His newest CD, Comedians & Angels, was also nominated for a Grammy and his first six albums have been rereleased. Paxton's influence on folk music has been inestimable: his songs have been recorded by several major artists including Peter Seeger; Peter, Paul, and Mary; Joan Baez; Arlo Guthrie; and Johnny Cash. His best known tunes include "The Last Thing on My Mond," "Ramblin' Boy," "Bottle of Wine," and "Goin' to tthe Zoo." Many address social concerns such as political injustice, inequality, and the ecology, but others celebrate the bonds of family and friendship, and the joys of childhood. He has been richly honored: the ASCAP Lifetime Achievement Award, four Grammy nominations, and the Martin Guitar Company has even named a guitar after him.
