About this title


A collection of fifteen lullabies, each with an historic note and a musical arrangement

From School Library Journal:

PreS Up Yolen offers 15 of her favorite lullabies. The majority are traditional tunes (for example, "Sleep, Baby, Sleep" and "Hush, Little Baby"), and one, "Lulloo Lullay," is Yolen's own composition. Piano arrangements (with basic guitar chords indicated) are simple but stay in tune rhythmically and harmonically with the verbal sentiments. As noted in the song introductions, some of these sentiments are not the cloying ones many anticipate for sleepy infants. Indeed, the emphasis on appropriateness for the mature singer rather than the infant audience provides surprisingly rich material. Particularly appealing are the performance instructions, such as "stately" (for "All Through the Night") and "chirrupy" (for "Hush Little Baby"). In the small spaces around the music, Mikolaycak's watercolor and colored pencils combine in varying palettes for each double page: sometimes somber violets and grays, sometimes warm russet, or lavenders, or greens. Furthermore, his astounding facility with perspective allows the eye to be drawn toward the often small focal point, the border, the arresting details, and back again. Talisman-like stars sprinkled over the initial pages are a visible reminder that these are night songs. The young audience most likely to hear these songs may have no appreciation for the sophisticated images, but weary parents and ambitious teen baby sitters will be drawn toward the magical atmosphere implied.
