Overview

Throughout the world, parents entertain and comfort children with play rhymes and lullabies, and every country has a unique store of them. Floella Benjamin has picked the best from six continents and nearly two dozen countries, bringing together familiar sing-a-longs and exotic folksongs previously known only through oral tradition. Divided into categories of lullabies, action rhymes, nature, and miscellaneous, these selections work equally well to soothe baby to sleep or for reading together in a nice comfy chair. Accented throughout by Sheila Moxley's creative illustrations, these songs come in both the original language (French, Spanish, Norwegian, Fanti, Yoruba, and others) and English translations.

A collection of traditional rhymes and lullabies from different countries.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
Benjamin offers an unusual collection of 32 rhymes from various places in the world. They are divided into four groups, the last one aptly called "Grab Bag." Some of the poems are printed in the original language as well as the translation and the action rhymes give tips on acting them out. The artwork is the strong point of this book with bright bold paintings throughout.
Children's Literature - Elizabeth Bagg
This is a disappointing resource book for adults. The colorful illustrations would be useful in schools as multicultural material. However, the translations of the rhymes are lacking in spirit and life and there is not enough explanation about how the rhymes are used.
School Library Journal
PreS-A multicultural collection of 32 nursery rhymes, some of which appear in their original languages-French, German, Spanish, Norwegian, Fanti, Luganda, and Yoruba-as well as in English. The sprightly, brightly colored folk-art illustrations have a childlike quality, complementing the rhymes, which are divided into categories of lullabies, action rhymes, nature, and miscellaneous. These work well for baby or laptime story hours, as actions are clearly described.-Sally R. Dow, Ossining Public Library, NY
