Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hush little baby, don't say a word,
Mama's going to show you a hummingbird.
If that hummingbird should fly,
Mama's going to show you the evening sky.

From award-winning artist Sylvia Long comes a touching version of the well-known lullaby, Hush Little Baby. Each spread reveals a tender scene as a mama bunny lulls her baby bunny to sleep by enlisting a parade of bedtime wonders — the beauty of a hummingbird in flight; the magic of a harvest moon; the reassurance of a parent's hug, all these and more combine to create a classic volume sure to be treasured for generations to come.

Review:

"In a variant of the traditional lullaby, a mother rabbit draws on the natural world at the close of day for her young child's bedtime ritual....The musical score is not included, but adults and listeners won't be able to refrain from humming or singing along." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"While her retelling stands on its own, it's the artwork that shines here. Long's beautiful ink-and-watercolor paintings are richly colored and realistically detailed." Booklist

Review:

"In her reworking of the classic lullaby, Long intentionally de-emphasizes the materialism of the original, making no promises of such grand gifts as a diamond ring or horse and cart....Blending images of nature with such timelessly reassuring items as teddy bear and picture book, Long's song is gracious if not especially inventive. The art, meanwhile, is both soothing and diverting. While the audience...may well find their eyelids growing heavy, they will be happily distracted by the pictures' fetching particulars." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

In this variation on an old lullaby, a baby rabbit is promised an assortment of presents from its adoring parent.
