Selected Lullabies

Selected Lullabies by Eugene Field
By: (1850-1895)

Selected Lullabies by Eugene Field is a charming collection of poems that are perfect for soothing little ones to sleep. The lullabies are beautifully written and full of whimsical imagery that is sure to capture the imagination of both children and adults alike. Each lullaby has its own unique charm and rhythm, making them a joy to read aloud. The illustrations that accompany the poems are equally delightful and add to the overall enchanting feel of the book. I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a peaceful and enchanting read to share with their little ones at bedtime.

Book Description:

The sweetest songs the world has ever heard are the lullabies that have been crooned above its cradles. The music of Beethoven and Mozart, of Mendelssohn and Schumann may perish, but so long as mothers sing their babies to sleep the melody of cradle lullabies will remain. Of all English and American writers the one who sang most often and most exquisitely these cradle songs was Eugene Field, the children’s poet. His verses not only have charm as poetry, but a distinct song quality and a naive fancy that is both childlike and appealing. That they were written out of Eugene Field’s deep and genuine love of children and out of his sympathetic understanding of their wondering minds is evident from the fact that his lullabies have taken a high and what seems to be a permanent place in the world’s classic literature of childhood. (Excerpted by Becky Miller from the Introduction by Edwin Osgood Grover to “Cradle Lullabies” by Eugene Field, published in 1909)
