Sleep, Baby, Sleep by Teri Weidner

Sleep, Baby, Sleep claims to be a “classic lullaby”. Maybe it is, but I certainly don’t recall it. Even so, this is a sweet bedtime book for the youngest kids, with cozy illustrations in gentle colors. I actually found it more difficult to read to older kids, who kept asking questions about unfamiliar vocabulary (woodbines? vale?)

I can see this becoming a good book-of-routine, one you read “every single night” just as you tuck a little one in to bed. It conveys a strong sense of security, and is well suited to a calm, slow pace.
