Reviews - What do customers think about Daddy's Lullaby?
Beautiful illustrations and lovely strory Apr 7, 2008
My 17 month old son loves to have this book read over and over especially before bed. The pictures are so soft and beautiful and show the Daddy coming home, feeding the cat and comforting the sweet little one who is still awake long after the rest of the house is asleep. He takes the baby from room to room looking in on baby's big brother and mother until they finally fall asleep in the chair with daddy singing a lullaby and baby on daddy's chest. This is a sweet, loving story with pictures showing a daddy's gentle care.
p.s. If this was a "stereotype from the 50's" as another reviewer said, daddy would not be helping with baby at all, mommy would be the one up in the night.
A nightly favorite Jul 3, 2006
My 21 month old loves this book, we read/sing it several times every night. He loves to point out the baby and the daddy and the cat. As a parent, I don't tire of it because the illustrations are really breathtaking. Highly reccommend!
Wonderful Book for Daddys and Babies Nov 26, 2004
Daddy's Lullaby is a wonderful story about a Daddy who comes home from work late one night- and finds his whole family asleep - all except his youngest baby. So, Daddy and Baby take a stroll around the house, checking on all sleeping family members. Then they settle down and Daddy sings Baby a lullaby (to the tune of Rock-a-by Baby). The illustrations are beautiful and the story is really sweet. This is a wonderful gift for expectant and/or new dads. I've bought several copies to give as gifts this holiday.
Beautiful and touching May 24, 2004
This book really touched my heart. I don't agree with the reviewer that said it reinforces stereotypes - if it does, then I guess my family is a stereotype because the book fit our family perfectly! My husband often comes home very late to find us all sleeping. The illustrations are beautiful and the story is very sweet.
A wonderful book! Apr 23, 2004
This story about a daddy coming home to find his baby awake, then walking all around the house to see the rest of the family sleeping is wonderful. The illustrations are truly spectacular. My 12 month old son loves the pictures of the cat and the baby,particularly and I can always get him to giggle at the end when you find out where the baby and the daddy end up at the end of their journey. I would positively recommend this book to anyone.
