Why did we select this book?
Rhyming books help children hear how words sound alike and as the book becomes a favorite through repeated readings, the rhymes will help your child know what words come next. We selected this beautiful board book because "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" is a lullaby that many of us remember from our own childhoods. Why are lullabies and songs important tools in raising your baby? Babies grow healthy and strong when they feel safe. That sense of safety begins with the sound of your voice, a sound that is even more comforting when it hums and sings. Illustrating this traditional lullaby are the animals of artist Sylvia Long . This book will grow with your child. He will enjoy Long's animals and their bedtime routines as he develops ones of his own in years to come.
