Hush, Little Baby

by J. Brian Pinkney
Illustrated by J. Brian Pinkney
Published by Greenwillow/Amistad

"Hush, Little Baby" is a traditional Appalachian lullaby, but in this book, author and illustrator J. Brian Pinkney sets his version in an African American household in the 1900's when Mama has gone for the day, and Papa is left to babysit the young ones. There are a few new lyrics in this song, so you might find some surprises. Borrow the book from the library to enjoy the illustrations as well!
