This music has an instant relaxing effect on me. I use it to get centered, to decompress. I play it over and over and never tire of it.
Parents: If you have been searching for a lullaby album that doesn't make you insane, a lullaby album that *you* can actually enjoy, then "On a Starry Night" is the album you have been looking for! There are no high-pitched notes geared to catch baby's attention. This music is simply soothing, calming, enjoyable for all the ears that hear it. Good night....
This is such a wonderful lullaby cd. We have given it for gifts many times. Our whole family loves to listen. You won't regret having this in your collection!
I don't have any kids, but I like to put music to whatever I'm reading. Not a New Age fan, I had to look for something relaxing with the punch of being different. I LOVE reading and studying to this. Better yet, it cozies up your space for those warm, quiet summer nights - or even the wintry ones, with something warm in your hands. Such a great choice...
My children have been falling asleep to this CD for a couple years now. The oldest is eight and it still never fails to put him to sleep. It is also very enjoyable for parents to listen to. I'm purchasing it as a gift for my new niece.
I bought this for my 2 granddaughters(1 1/2 & 3 years old) for nap time. I laid down with them to listen and WOW what gentle, soothing music. Now they ask for me to put it when it's time for naps.
We've had two children blissfully fall asleep to this music. We also have given as a gift to other parents. Buy it and you'll never regret it, just turn the lights off and all go to sleep.
