With these words, a mother and father start the nighttime ritual of putting a toddler to sleep. There’s "splash-a-bye" time in the bathtub with rubber-duck squeaks and bubble-beard cheeks; "rock-a-bye" time where the whole family sings silly songs together; "hush-a-bye" time with Dad reading and the moon watching from high above; and finally, "Lull-abye" time again, as the child gently eases into sleep.
With its lilting read-aloud rhythm and Hideko Takahashi’s warm, comforting illustrations, Lull-a-Bye, Little One is a celebration of the love a family shares at bedtime. Young readers will want to hear this book every night as they drift into slumbers.
