BABY IS CRYING and Crow and Goose and Owl and Swan all think they have the perfect antidote - "I'll take baby flying, that will stop the crying." And as baby floats on wings of love above fields and oceans, he is soothed. . . until each bird in turn crows just a bit too loudly and proudly at his own success and wakes that baby up again. Finally, little Nightingale, who has been struggling to be heard, gets her chance to try a lullaby. Our tearful baby is now dreamimg sweet dreams. And soon the birds are sleepingtoo - and so will you.This book has perfect pacing, exactly mirroring the rhythm of a child struggling to fall asleep and finally settling down. And Dan Yaccarino's dreamy, etherial artwork is the perfect match for Dee Lillegard's sweet song of a story.
