Comments for City Lullaby
City Lullaby by Marilyn Singer and Illustrated by Carll Cneut is a counting book set in a busy and noisy city. A mother is pushing her sleeping baby through the hustle and bustle.
The noise is made up a traffic jam, ringing cell phones, dogs barking, trash cans being bashed about, car alarms, taxis, a two on two basket ball game, some busses and two loud motorcycles. None of this though can wake the baby, whose contented face is show opposite each of the crowded and busy city street illustrations.
There is a lot to look at and the racket can be fun to mimic. I don't see this "lullaby" being a quiet before bed book. It's far too playful and colorful.
