About the Author:

Linda Saport has illustrated many distinctive picture books, amoung them Subira Subira by Tololwa M. Mollel and All the Pretty Little Horses: A Lullaby. She lives in Boulder, Colorado.

From Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-This classic lullaby, thought to have originated during slavery in the American South, is carefully illustrated with one double-page spread for each line. The pictures are rendered in pastels and are dominated by rich hues of the blues, purples, and yellows found in evening skies. Mother, the source of life, dressed in yellow, begins the story with a finger posed to hush, radiating love and care in an image that is larger than the page can hold. The colors reinforce both the emotional concern of the African-American mother and the whimsical elements found in the lullaby. Transitions between the reality of parent with child and the fantasy of the infant's dreams are seamless. Notes about the probable origin of the song and the musical score are included.
