The Baby’s Bedtime Book
Words and Tunes by Various Artists
Illustrated by Kay Chorao

Pretty illustrations in this collection and a nice selection of lullabies and singable poems.

I especially love the illustration Kay Chorao has made for TWINKLE LITTLE STAR, DAY IS DONE, SWEET AND LOW, and a beautiful two page spread at both the front and back of the book, of the night sky and village by the sea.
