5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Folk Bedtime Lullaby Book and CD 7 Jan 2009
By May Flower - Published on
The traditional folk music that has been around for generations still has a place in the home music collections. Peter Yarrow (of the 1960's band Peter, Paul and Mary) has just recently released two story songbooks titled The Peter Yarrow Songbook: Sleepytime Songs and The Peter Yarrow Songbook: Favorite Folk Songs. Following on the heels of his popular, bestselling Puff the Magic Dragon, these new songbooks are full of multi-generational musical gems.

We love our copy of The Peter Yarrow Songbook: Sleepytime Songs. It is quite impressive and truly a great bargain. A whopper of an illustrated picture book, it includes a corresponding music CD in addition to guitar chord accompaniment diagrams and a section of historical facts about the songs in the back of the book. Twelve lullabies were chosen for the book and the lyrics to each of the songs have been beautifully illustrated by Terry Widener. Many of the illustrations include an image of a sleeping child. The CD is a pure folk recording, with Yarrow and his daughter, Bethany singing accompanied only by two acoustic guitars. Their voices blend wonderfully together in the comforting, lulling melodies.

Buy this one to share with children, parents, grandparents, or friends. Few products are appropriate for all generations. This is one of the few.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beloved lullabies that soothe both children and adults 11 Dec 2009
By Z Hayes - Published on
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Peter Yarrow of "Peter, Paul, and Mary" has compiled a lovely book of beloved lullabies with an accompanying CD that contains 12 songs performed by Peter and his talented daughter Bethany Yarrow. I fell in love with this pair's voices when my preschooler and I listened to their rendition of "Puff, the Magic Dragon" in their children's book of the same name. This songbook has become another firm favorite at our house - the songs are soothing, and my almost 5-year-old who is also beginning to read, tries to sing along to the lyrics and the songs on the CD, which makes this not just a great book of "sleepytime" songs but also a wonderful teaching tool. The price offered here on Amazon is a bargain! The book is in hardcover, which makes it more durable, and the illustrations by Terry Widener are beautiful, with an almost magical, otherworldly quality to them.

Besides the songs, the book also contains tips for those intending to play the songs, and there are also lyrics with chords provided. There is a brief background provided for each song, as well as some information about the author and illustrator. This is a wonderful book of beloved songs and is definitely keepsake quality. Highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars The CD that comes with this book is a real gem - get it for the CD!! 4 Dec 2013

Good choice of songs. My boys love them and a few of them have a deeply soothing/spiritual feeling. Our c.d. got scratched up and I had to order another cause I as mom missed it (have great memories of bed time and night light)! Really wonderful CD. Don't even know about the book - may have read it once!!
