Good night, dear. Sleep time is soon. Hang your socks on a slice of the moon. This is one of the sweet and simple verses in Lullabies of Love. Songs that soothe and soft sounds that smooth invite even the youngest children to listen to the lyrics of language. Here and there, whimsy teases the imagination, as in a recipe for sweetest dreams. Throughout the book, familiar imagery, rhyme and alliteration entice the newest ‘readers’ into the world of pictures.
