Book Review: Day’s End Lullaby by Karen Cioffi and illustrated by Robyn Feltman

Good day everyone, Zebee here. Today we have a bedtime lullaby to share with you. Here’s what they are saying:

“Day’s End Lullaby” is a tender and charming illustrated children’s book. From a reminder that the sun has set and all beloved toys are awaiting tomorrow’s play, Day’s End Lullaby soothes and quiets even those children who struggle against sleep.

“Your day’s been long and full of fun. But, now you’re much too tired to run,” sings the parent to the child in the lullaby. Author Cioffi composed the poem and music over 30 years ago to help her first born fall asleep and then again for her second child. She saw positive results in singing it and now she sings it to her grandsons. She reassures them “The sun has set, it’s out of view. The moon’s now shining bright for you.”

Authors Cioffi and Feltman wrote and illustrated Day’s End Lullaby as a loving picture book to help comfort little ones and provide a sense of security at bedtime. The simple and colorful illustrations are intended to hold the child’s attention while the parent’s soothing voice lulls him or her gently into a peaceful slumber.

You're welcome Karen. Best of luck with your book and I plan on getting a nice tan while we're out there sailing for 6 weeks.
