“Lullabies, simple songs, and rhymes! They are so much more than notes and rhythms—they have a way of bringing adults and children close together in warm, fun, loving ways. This rich collection of classic treasures that John Feieraband has gathered can easily nourish both children and their adults.” —Fred Rogers, creator and host, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood
