Renowned musician Jill Barber provides soft, soothing words to calm baby before sleep. HildaRose's colorful illustrations depict different parent-child pairs getting ready for sleep: from otters, to fish, geese, squirrels, raccoons and, of course, baby! The stimulating visuals and patterns, recognizable baby and animal faces, and closeups on parent-child interaction will keep baby engaged. The text's use of rhythm, repetition and simple language means baby and parents will enjoy reading Baby's Lullaby again and again. This sturdy board book is suited for babies age 0–2 years old. When you purchase the book, you’ll receive a code to redeem a free song download of "Lay Down," the song that became the book.

"[An] attractive board book...Presented in a quiet, folk-song style, the lullaby is calming and restful...Each picture, filling the page, is bright, colourful and very appealing for young children. Recommended."
