I am looking for a book with maybe a recording of the Mocking Bird Song. My granddaughter is having a baby and I would like to get it for her, but have been unable to find it anywhere and I was hoping you might have an idea where I might look.

When she was a little girl I could hear her mom and her sing this song as she was being put to bed at night and thought she might like to have it for her baby.


Hello! “Hush Little Baby” can also be called “The Mocking Bird Song” is that the song you’re talking about? If so, there are some wonderful illustrations, sing-along and vocal tracks for that song. I wrote a post about the song, illustrated versions, song history, sing along tracks etc, just click this link:

My personal favorite is illustrated by Marla Frazee. You can get almost any book you’re looking for from online booksellers like,, or Or check your local bookstores (especially the independant ones!).
Best wishes and thanks so much for contacting me. If you don’t find what you are looking for, please feel free to write again!

Emily, thanks so much for your including my work of “Singable Poems” from my CD “The Gift of Make-Believe.” May I use some of your quotes on my website? Love your blog. We definitely share the same passion for great music + children’s literature! Feel free to drop me a line at Best Wishes, Ginger
