My mama sings me a lullaby<P>When the sun goes down<P>My mama sings me a lullaby<P>All my own . . .<P>This stunning picture book is based on a song Naomi Shihab Nye wrote and recorded and is illustrated with breathtaking pastels by one of the most respected editorial illustrators working today. Naomi's magical, lyrical lullaby explores the magic of the night and a child's first brush with independence. The book first introduces readers to the child's compelling circle of pets -- a chicken, turtle, bunny, and lizard -- and then invites us to join the child and the animals for a ride on a small slice of the golden moon . . . the lullaby raft. The lullaby itself is quiet, intriguing, and empowering and Vivienne's haunting and elegant illustrations both extend and compliment the words.
