Product Description

Review

--"PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY, " January 20, 1997 In her reworking of the classic lullaby, Long intentionally de-emphasizes the materialism of the original, making no promises of such grand gifts as a diamond ring or horse and cart. Rather, this Mama character--one of Long's (illustrator of "Ten Little Rabbits)"familiar, gentle bunnies--comforts her cotton-tailed child with vows to share the sound of cricket calls and a song on her banjo, the sight of a shooting star and the harvest moon and, finally, "As that moon drifts through the sky, Mama's going to sing you a lullaby." Blending images of nature with such timelessly reassuring items as teddy bear and picture book, Long's song is gracious if not especially inventive. The art, meanwhile, is both soothing and diverting. While the audience (like Mama's cooperative offspring) may well find their eyelids growing heavy, they will be happily distracted by the pictures' fetching particulars: a patchwork quilt displaying miniature renditions of objects mentioned in the lullaby and, on the bedside table, a book illustration that hints that this sleepy rabbit is reading the same book that they are. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The illustrations are gorgeous. The text is from a famous lullaby so you can sing it to the child as well as read it. I bought several copies as baby gifts for newborns. My grandchild who is now two years old is totally content to have this read or sung to her, while turning pages to enjoy the illustrations, as part of her bedtime ritual.

This is a really lovely bedtime book for your little one. My little girl got this from the library and loved it so much she cried when we took it back so I bought this. A lovely twist on the classic which has become part of our bedtime routine. This is a real family favourite and is now a classic in our house.

This is a wonderful book. I don't know which is more beautiful--the text or the words. My one-year-old and three-year-old just love this book.

This is an excellent alternative to the words for the Mocking Bird song. The illustrations are super.
