Everymans Library pursues the highest standards, utilizing modern prepress, printing, and binding technologies to produce classically designed books printed on acid-free natural-cream-colored text paper and including Smyth-sewn, signatures, full-cloth cases with two-color case stamping, decorative endpapers, silk ribbon markers, and European-style half-round spines.

Synopsis:

In this enchanting and comprehensive collection, the lullabies we all were rocked to sleep with, such as “Rock-a-Bye Baby” and “Hush Little Baby, Dont You Cry,” mingle with traditional lullabies from around the world. Here are beautiful lyrics to sing or read to little ones, from Shakespeares lullaby for the fairy queen, Titania, to Brahmss “Lullaby”; and from Gershwins “Summertime” to Langston Hughess lovely lullaby for a “night black baby.” Here, too, are poems for children that range from tender to nonsensical, from quiet to raucous-from Walter de la Mare to T. S. Eliot to Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, and Ogden Nash.

Whether the intent is to soothe or to amuse, theres something here for every mood, every child, and the child in every adult. A delightful, gift-perfect collection.
