Lullabyes & Fairy Tales for Little Ones!

Posted by Talula on November 14, 2007

Lullabyes Edit: I really had to add a  note about our new Spring 2008 release of Celtic Dreamland  from my Barefoot Books website! Talk about beautiful music; this is perfect for drifting off to sleep with the sounds of Celtic Europe! (Putumayo Kids @ Barefoot Books $15.99)

Today is just a quick little note for those new mommies who need some ideas for Lullabyes and for those with pre-k little ones that would love new bedtime stories. I have read and listened to the Barefoot Books listed and as well as some of the other books with my own chldren and grandchildren; I hope you will enjoy them as much as I have through the years.
