Synopses & Reviews
Lyrical and full of love, this gentle picture book--based on a song that Atinuke's father sang to her in Nigeria--is the perfect bedtime lullaby.
Baby, sleepy baby, I'll sing down the stars
till they dance right into your room.
It's bedtime for a drowsy little one, and the whole family takes turns to cuddle and sing this sleepy baby to bed. One by one the baby's sister, grandmother, father, and mother call on the winds, the clouds, the stars, and the moon to sail and rock and delight their little one until dreams take over. With soothing language and deep, moonlit colors, author Atinuke and illustrator Angela Brooksbank reunite to evoke the warmth and tenderness of wrapping a child in nighttime's embrace, as they celebrate the moments families share with their sleepy babies at bedtime.
