Synopsis

Lullabies and Poems for Children by Diana Secker Tesdell

In this enchanting collection, favourite bed-time songs for children - 'Rock-a-bye, Baby', 'Bye, Baby Bunting', 'Golden Slumbers' - mingle with less familiar lullabies from around the world. Added to these are beautiful lyrics to sing or read to your little ones, from Brahms' 'Lullaby' to Gershwin's 'Summertime'; from Shakespeare's lullaby for the fairy queen Titania to Langston Hughes' lullaby for a 'night black baby'. Here, too, are nursery rhymes, and poems for older children by a wide variety of authors - Walter de la Mare, Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, T.S. Eliot and Ogden Nash, to name but a few. Whether the intent is to soothe or to amuse, there is something here for every mood, every child, and the child in every adult.
