Lullabies and Poems for Children

In this enchanting and comprehensive collection, the lullabies we were all rocked to sleep with, such as “Rock-a-Bye Baby” and “Hush Little Baby, Don’t You Cry,” mingle with traditional lullabies from around the world. Here are beautiful lyrics to sing or read to children, from Shakespeare’s lullaby for the fairy queen, Titania, to Brahms’s “Lullaby,” and from Gershwin’s “Summertime” to Langston Hughes’s lovely lullaby for a “night black baby.” Here, too, are poems for children, ranging from the tender to the nonsensical, from the quiet to the raucous—from Walter de la Mare and T. S. Eliot to Lewis Carroll, Edward Lear, and Ogden Nash.
