Rock-a-bye, little one, bedtime is soon.
Rocking horse waits in your rock-a-bye room.
A mother soothes her daughter before bed as they say good night to all the things in her room—a rocking horse, dolls, blocks, and even the pictures on the wall—until it's time to share a story and a kiss good night. With lulling rhymes and lush watercolors, Rock-a-Bye Room is a homespun love song from a mother to child with a dreamy, rockabilly twist. This tender lullaby will be the perfect complement to any child's nighttime ritual.
Praise for Rock-a-Bye Room
"Rich watercolors add to the dreamy feel of Susan Meyers's Rock-a-Bye Room, in which a guitar-strumming mom helps her daughter tuck everything in her room in for the night. You'll find yourself sing-reading this to the tune of your favorite lullaby."
"As gentle a rocking rock-a-bye as anyone's likely to find this side of the moon."
"Bates captures the mother's tenderness in every expression. This dreamy and comforting story will make a sweet addition to bedtime-story collections."
—School Library Journal
