The illustrator of The Bremen-Town Musicians presents a treasury of nighttime songs and poems, from Brahms's gentle lullaby to the rumbling and beeping "Manhattan Lullaby," illustrating them all with bright, jewel-tone, full-color artwork.

From Publishers Weekly:

An old-fashioned Valentine to the very young, this small-format collection of lullabies features poems culled mainly from traditional songs and turn-of-the-century verses. Plume's (The Bremen-Town Musicians; The Twelve Days of Christmas) selections include regional choices like "Mockingbird," "Kentucky Babe," "Hush'n'Bye" and "Nantucket Lullaby" as well as old chestnuts like Brahms's "Lullaby" and Kipling's "Seal Lullaby." Each page-length poem faces a soothing pastel page inset with one of Plume's trademark soft, colored-pencil drawings. The tone of the book is self-consciously quaint: Thomas Dekker's "Golden Slumbers" is juxtaposed with a drawing of a mother at sunset rocking an infant nestled in a carved cradle; the familiar "Twinkle, twinkle, little star" accompanies a picture of a girl whose blanket and pajamas are decorated with hearts. Even Plume's nod toward modernity-the inclusion of a New York City skyline to illustrate Norma Farber's noisy "Manhattan Lullaby"-is nostalgic. Grandparents will be drawn to the heart-shaped drawing of a sleeping baby nestled amid lilies and roses on the book's cover, but the modern toddlers for whom the volume is ostensibly intended may be less enthralled. Ages 3-6.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Plume has selected 14 bedtime poems and lullabies, ranging from Brahms and traditional sources to more contemporary poets. Her old-fashioned, gentle, colored-pencil illustrations are filled with tiny details and framed with pastel borders. The subtitle is misleading-the small size and intricacy of the pictures make the book more appropriate for older preschool children. Most of the entries can be found in other collections, making this one an additional choice.
