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.
