Soothing rhyme and muted nighttime illustrations make a perfect, calming, bedtime book.
"Hillside Lullaby" is filled with love and nature. It is about a little girl who is not quite ready to go to sleep. She listens for nature's lullabies. Meanwhile, out in nature a variety of animals bond with their Moms and then settle down for the night. Soothing rhyme and muted nighttime illustrations make a perfect, calming, bedtime book. Margie Moore's illustrations lull visually while the comforting text creates a sense of relaxation.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

"There's a breeze on the hill blowing sleepy and fresh, like the breath of the harvest moon. And tucked in the cattails, a bold little toad echoes his mother's tune. Peep, peep. Dream deep!" . . . There's a cricket in tall grass. He's tuning his wings and learning the hillside song. His mom plays beside him, a chorus of strings. The whole hillside sings along."
In the end, the peaceful hillside songs accompany the little girl into dreamland.
