    I m a new convert to these illustrated lullabies I usually find I know the first line of every verse, but not enough to sing the actual song Reading it in a story with illustrations is a great way to introduce the lullaby to my son, and it s much memorable for me than just looking up the lyrics online This lullaby book is beautifully and whimsically illustrated, and even includes a little history of the song at the front of the book It s shorter than the type of book my son prefers these days, [...]

    A favorite lullabies of mine, this beautifully illustrated book is a wonderful bedtime story for sleepy babies The cool blues of the watercolors encourage a baby to sooth themselves and settle down for the night.

    I appreciated the sheet music in the back of the book, so I could play the song on the piano.

    I liked this book, it was cute and simple It is a short book but interesting as well The song itself is something fun to try out on the piano
