My husband first discovered this author's books a year ago. Since then we have bought every book she's written. The poetry of her words is so beautiful and truly touches the heart. This one has become our newest family favorite. We have already read it to our 2 year old so many times that we can easily sing it as a lullaby. My daughter loves all the pictures of the animals. I cannot recommend this book highly enough...You will love it!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

A baby lamb is curled up in blissful sleep as its parents whisper "sleep, baby, sleep." Thus opens this charming new bedtime story about the daily adventures a lamb, or other baby animal might have during one day's time.
The effortless rhyming text has a soft, comforting rhythm that should comfort any young child. The prose on each page presents a different activity such as "soar, baby, soar," and "climb, baby, climb," with accompanying illustrations of baby animals enjoying the activity under the careful watch of ones parent(s).
"Laugh, baby, laugh,
frolic like the calf,
nose tickled by the grass and rye,
eyes twinkling at the beaming sky,
laugh, baby, laugh.
After many soothing pages, the poem concludes as it started, with "sleep, baby, sleep."
The drawings are simple and bright and complement the story perfectly. This is a book that young children will want read to them over and over.
Quill says: Sleep, Baby, Sleep is the perfect bedtime story.
