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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
