Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Content Awareness Factors:

The poem was a little mush.


Little Kid Reaction

My 3-year-old was intrigued by the pictures of the babies. He made observations about the babies, such as the "similarity" between the twins. My 1-year-old lost interest.

Parent Reaction

I felt that this would have "read" better if it had actually been a song with a melody. As it was, it was repetitive and a little "new age."

This is a photo-illustrated lullaby for infants.
Educational Themes:

This is a poem for sharing. You might use the book with a toddler or preschooler to identify body parts.
