Hamm, Diane Johnston. Rock-a-bye Farm. Illustrated by Alexi Natchev.
In this silly bedtime book, a farmer takes great pleasure in rocking his loved ones to sleep. It starts off with him gently rocking his baby to sleep, but by the end, he's rocked his dog, his hens, his sheep, his pig, his cow, his horse, etc. It's a bit silly and a lot playful. But it has a charm all its own. Especially the illustrations.
I liked this one. Didn't love it. But I liked it.
This book was originally released as a picture book in the early nineties. It has now been released in board book format.
