Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
PreS—According to an author's note, this lullaby is set to an old Mother Goose rhyme. Unlike the original poem, it seeks to encourage children not only to be gentle and calm as lambs, but to be dynamic and confident as well: "Be always like the hound who dares/To find adventure everywhere." The lulling poem is matched with spreads of animal parents and their offspring. The semiabstract cartoon creatures are rendered in ink and watercolor over washes of sunsets and oceans. The result is simultaneously reassuring and celebratory.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
Kirkus Reviews
Soft watercolor illustrations and soothing rhymes encourage baby to rise, soar, laugh and shine. Adapted from a Mother Goose poem, this exhortation delivers hushed good wishes while emphasizing character traits that make for a happy life. Children should shine "like the firefly who glows / no matter how the darkness grows." Love's language lulls using a rhyme scheme and syllabic stresses that establish a comforting cadence, much like a rocking chair's gentle beat. Her melodic messages may, however, exceed the scope of a tiny child's understanding. Sometimes the language grows so sentimental it becomes clunky and a bit sappy: "From our arms you'll go / unfurling like a butterfly . . . ." Van Lieshout's wonderfully saturated watercolors achieve greater success expressing parental love and the promise of a life well lived. Loose, self-assured black brushstrokes appear on swaths of graduated color, carving out shapes (horses, dogs, flowers, ducks) with economy. Fireflies blink, doves coo, a hound shakes his jowls. While words melt away into simple rhythms, the atmospheric artwork pinpoints ineffable feelings-the sense of freedom brought on by a breeze, the possibility invoked by starlit sky. (Picture book. 1-3)

    Wonderful book...Must-Have!

    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!

    The perfect bedtime story

    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.
