In a a wonderous bedtime tale for young children, a little child, a chicken, a lizard, and a turtle say good-night to their quiet town and begin their adventure in the world of dreams on the lullaby raft."
was originally a song that creator Naomi Shihab Nye performed herself on tour around schools. A talented musician, Nye is also the award-winning author of Sitti's Secrets
and Benito's Dream Bottle
. Happily, the words of "Lullaby Raft" are now captured in this warmly illustrated bedtime book, sure to generate only good dreams.
The little girl in this story drifts into a peaceful slumber as her mother sings. In her dream, even her animals (a rabbit, chicken, lizard, and turtle) are carried away on the notes of the lullaby. Together they climb aboard a crescent-shaped moon raft, floating high above the rooftops and clouds, spanning the wide night until morning. Vivienne Flesher's restful, artful chalk- pastel illustrations complement the softly worded prose: "My bunny climbs into my drawer/Where the socks are soft and rolled/My bunny holds her secret note/ No one can hear." A truly comforting book for sleepy youngsters. (Ages 4 to 8)
