Nine O'Clock Lullaby
DescriptionWhen it's 9 P.M. in Brooklyn, it's 10 P.M. in Puerto Rico, and midnight on the mid-Atlantic. Far from the vroom of New York traffic, the Puerto Rican night is filled with congo music, sweet rice, and fruit ice. In India, villagers begin their morning chores as well ropes squeak, buckets splash, and bracelets jangle. Meanwhile, in Australia, a sly kookaburra is ready for a noontime feast.
Marilyn Singer's rhythmic lullaby, with bright illustrations by Frane Lessac, gently transports children through different time zones and distant lands. Young readers will travel far from home, then back again, on a glorious bedtime journey.
