Product Details


* “Gently funny and eminently reassuring expansion of the original rhyme, which replicates the soothing rhythms of the source material. . . . Mulazzini’s mixed-media paintings play right into the safe, secure mood. Her softly flowing shapes, subdued palette, and quirky details create the sense of a dreamscape.”Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Ashman’s fresh take on the classic lullaby ‘Rock-A-Bye, Baby’ first expands upon and then addresses the nonsensical aspects of the verses. . . . A succession of increasingly silly resting or play scenarios for baby. . . . Mulazzani’s mixed-media art indulges in delightful decorative details. . . . A fine addition to the nursery bookshelf for baby and all.”Kirkus Reviews

“Soothing, dreamy art . . . keeps the dark palette and wild adventure from feeling threatening with its friendly animals and personified sun, moon, and occasional trees all keeping watch over the baby. This gently rhyming adventure provides a new take on a classic lullaby that may calm caregivers troubled by lyrics of babies falling from treetops.”School Library Journal

“Ashman and Mulazzani have breathed twenty-first-century life into this well-know lullaby. The bustling mixed-media illustrations give a modern feel to the rhyming text, which flows easily from page to page. . . . While there is plenty of action here, the soft pastels and blue-green color scheme give the story a sleepy feel. Touches of patterned paper add visual spark.”Booklist
