When the baby rocking to sleep in the treetop disappears, readers of all ages will be delighted to follow on the adventure! Baby meets new animal friends, explores the farm, even goes on a boat ride, all before ending up safely at home in mama’s arms. Rock-A-Bye Romp by Linda Ashman and Simona Mulazzani is a clever expansion of a classic lullaby. The story is told lovingly in rhyme, with baby’s adventure taking him to all sorts of unexpected places! The littlest readers will adore this bedtime story, delighting in the vibrant illustrations filled with muted nighttime colors and enjoying the relatively smooth cadence of the story. Baby is conveniently never given a particular gender, which most readers will enjoy (although there are bound to be a few out there who are bothered by this). Parents, too, will be happy to read this one over and over again to their loved ones. Rock-A-Bye Romp is sure to become an evening favorite.
