A good lullaby, like a good bedtime book, gives you words that simultaneously sooth and give the subconscious something to play with in your dreams. By taking this old Scottish poem and giving it just the right form and format, Rohmann offers folks a bedtime book just right for kids both young and old. A beautiful little package and a very pretty, very sweet, very honest little book.

Just eleven lines of an old Scottish lullaby make up the text of this little book. In it a small squirrel family wakes up and the two kids go out to play. By the end of a long day they go back to the tree and watch the stars come out before tucking back into bed once more. Finishes the poem that makes up the text, “A fond goodnight / Wherever you are.”
