Lullaby Farm Board Book
$7.49 (25% off)
- ItÕs bedtime on the farm. The lambs and goslings cuddle with their mamas. The baby mice have a late-night snack. Piglets snore in their pen, and sleepy chicks nestle close to mother hen. But will mama sheepdog ever get her wriggly puppies to bed?
- Barnyard animals peacefully slumber.A little farm pup pokes around the farmyard as the sheep, mice, ducklings, and other animals prepare for bed. A nightingale sings a sweet lullaby as the pup explores. The book employs a simple abcb rhyme scheme to lull little readers into somnolence, using soft language and a reassuring tone. The illustrations are composed with deep, warm colors and painterly affectations to draw readers in and keep them focused. Although this board book seems tailor-made for bedtime reading, it should not be used as a grand finale. The text curiously uses `Good morning to you!` as its last sentence (referencing the rooster`s morning call), putting an oddly wakeful aftertaste in readers` minds. A serviceable bedtime story that will help calm little ones down after a long day
