The Book of Lullabies: Wonderful Songs and Rhymes Passed Down from Generation to Generation for Infants & Toddlers (First Steps in Music series) Reviews
This is a wonderful collection of tunes that are satisfying, soothing and imaginative. They are all folk tunes collected by scholars, which means they have already withstood the test of time for quality, and they are in the public domain. Not that babies care... Folk wisdom says that you should sing a lullaby twice and hum it for the third time, which puts the baby to sleep. Enjoy this delicious collection!
I bought this as a gift for a friend, and she loved it! So many warm childhood memories!
Have given this book as a gift for many baby showers and I get nothing but great responses in return. Cannot say enough good about this series!
Very nice book of lullabies. I plan to play them on my harp and put on a cd for our Church Nursery. Received book in great condition and in a great time frame. Thank you.
This book is all-inclusive. it includes the origional language of the lullaby and when that is not english, it gives an english translation.
An almost comprehensive collection of lullabies from around most of the world. None from Native America or the Pacific Islands. Both music (the melody line) and lyrics are provided. This is a great book for those who wish to sing to their child Those interested in the lullaby as a music form, perhaps the earliest songs of humanity, will find this collection very useful, but information about the sources is lacking. I read music and can play most of these on Native American flutes, and I am sure the player of any instrument could play them as well. The chording is not indicated, but any musician can figure out what chords to play to accompany a singer or someone playing these simple tunes.
Good little book
I didn't get this book until my daughter turned 14 months old. I wish I had it earlier then she would be introduced to more than just "Rock-a-Bye, Baby" for her first 14 months. Now, every night, I sing three of four different songs to her from this book. My favorites so far are "All the Pretty Little Horses," : All Through the Night," and "Huna Blentyn (Sleep, My Baby)." The music notation is great for me, a musician, to practice sight singing when trying to learn a new tune. I think this is a great book and I am looking forward to buy more song books from the First Steps series.
