What a resonant and beautiful instrument! Two things, given that you have a read both for a late night jazz radio station and for Goodnight Moon, I immediately thought of my own experience teaching jazz to very young children. We used to sing the text of Goodnight Moon to the tune of Naima by John Coltrane. Maybe try speaking the text while listening to that recording and see what, if anything, it does to change the pacing and/or melodic delivery? I also think there may be opportunities to create more interest in the list of things that the author is saying goodnight to. The word “goodnight” is repeated over and over which makes the things being said “goodnight” TO inherently more interesting. Perhaps try stretching out some of the text and adding a bit more space between the “goodnights?” Great work!
