Summary
Lyrical and full of love, this gentle picture book--based on a song that Atinuke's father sang to her in Nigeria--is the perfect bedtime lullaby.

Baby, sleepy baby, I'll sing down the stars
till they dance right into your room.

It's bedtime for a drowsy little one, and the whole family takes turns to cuddle and sing this sleepy baby to bed. One by one the baby's sister, grandmother, father, and mother call on the winds, the clouds, the stars, and the moon to sail and rock and delight their little one until dreams take over. With soothing language and deep, moonlit colors, author Atinuke and illustrator Angela Brooksbank reunite to evoke the warmth and tenderness of wrapping a child in nighttime's embrace, as they celebrate the moments families share with their sleepy babies at bedtime.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "The author of the Anna Hibiscus series turns her attention to a younger audience with this comforting lullaby demonstrating that it takes a village (or at the very least, an extended family) to get Baby to sleep. Mama calls on the winds to settle Baby; Grandma cuddles the babe in some clouds; Mama sings down the stars for him while the entire family entreats the moon to smile on the child's face. Then Dad wraps the child in night's blanket, and Mom, Dad, and Baby drift off to sleep. Brooksbank's mixed-media illustrations favor blues and pinks, with yellow and green used for accent. The family depicted is mixed race (white mom, Black dad and grandma, and a lighter-skinned brown baby and sister), with a setting suggesting the outdoors. The spreads become darker as the night progresses, and an ethereal aura is present in all the artwork. A lovely nod to the importance of extended family in a child's life as well as a lyrical bedtime read."
