The lyrical text matches the soothing visuals as each family member interacts with the baby in turn, until the parents drift off to sleep with their little one dozing between them. Don't sleep on this sweet bedtime book: It's as cozy as can be.

--School Library Journal

An ethereal aura is present in all the artwork. A lovely nod to the importance of extended family in a child's life as well as a lyrical bedtime read.

With the help of natural elements like the clouds and the moon, family members sing their baby to sleep. It's no wonder this bedtime story reads like a lullaby as author Atinuke based the text on a song her father used to sing. The illustrations by Angela Brooksbank are like a dream lulling your toddler to sleep.
