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.

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
