Poetry Friday: Bedtime Sing To Me

Ohanesian, Diane C. 2009. Bedtime Sing To Me. Illustrated by Nadine Bernard Westcott. Scholastic.

This bedtime board book features 'songs' for you and your little one to share together. Whether you sing or read these to your precious one, the book is enjoyable. It does feature a CD with the songs. (The CD is roughly 17 minutes.) Some are original songs. Others are twists on classics. (Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star = Twinkle, Twinkle, Count With Me). Some use classic tunes but original (new) lyrics. (Mamas and Their Babies to the tune of The Itsy Bitsy Spider).

Here's a bit from Rock-a-bye Seasons:

My little pumpkin,
What do you do
Every fall season
When sleep time is through?

Do you pick apples
So red and round?
Or gather up leaves
That fall to the ground?

My little snowflake,
What do you do
Each winter morning
When sleep time is through?

Do you go walking
Through the white snow?
and wear big red boots
Wherever you go?

To catch up on the other two seasons, seek this book out for yourself...
