Product Description

This book is a treasury of lullabies and poems for small children from around the world and through the ages. Well-known classics such as "Rock-a-bye Baby" and "Hush little baby, don't you cry" mingle with traditional lullabies from Africa and Asia. Here are beautiful lyrics to sing or read to little ones, from Brahms' famous Lullaby to Shakespeare's lullaby to Titania the fairy queen to Langston Hughes's Harlem Lullaby. Here too are poems to delight young audiences (and their parents), from T.S. Eliot's Jellicle Cats to the musical nonsence of Lewis Carroll and Edward Lear, and the whimsy of Walter de la Mare and Ogden Nash. Whether the intent is to soothe or to provoke a giggle, there's something for every mood in this collection, a perfect gift for new parents everywhere.

Publisher's Description

In this enchanting and comprehensive collection, the lullabies we all were rocked to sleep with, such as “Rock-a-Bye Baby” and “Hush Little Baby, Don’t You Cry,” mingle with traditional lullabies from around the world. Here are beautiful lyrics to sing or read to little ones, from Shakespeare’s lullaby for the fairy queen, Titania, to Brahms’s “Lullaby”; and from Gershwin’s “Summertime” to Langston Hughes’s lovely lullaby for a “night black baby.” Here, too, are poems for children that range from tender to nonsensical, from quiet to raucous–from Walter de la Mare to T. S. Eliot to Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, and Ogden Nash.

Whether the intent is to soothe or to amuse, there’s something here for every mood, every child, and the child in every adult. A delightful, gift-perfect collection.
