Including the text and musical notation of 80 lullabies that have withstood the test of time, this book will inspire joy, and laughter in infants and toddlers. The book features songs in English as well as in Japanese, Russian, Yiddish, Spanish, French, German, and several other languages, with English translations. Favorites such as Brahms' "Lullaby," "Hush, My Baby Don't You Cry," "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," and "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" are just a sampling of the numerous multilingual, multicultural soothing songs that lull children to sleep.
John M. Feierabend is professor and chair of the music education division at the Hartt School of the University of Hartford in Connecticut. He lives in West Hartford, Connecticut.
“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
