May the Stars Drip Down by Jeremy Chatelain

This is an interesting children's picture book.  It's based on a song by indie rock band Cub Country.

Abrams Books for Young Readers sent me a copy of this book for review (thank you).  It has been published so check with your local bookstore for a copy.

It sounds like a song when you read it even though I didn't know it was based on one.  This is a sweet lullaby to share with your little one when you are putting them to bed.  The illustrations are done by Nikki McClure and help lead you into ethereal world of dreams:  safe, solid, nice dreams of wandering the wonders of the earth at night.

Just to tempt you even more, here's a link to the website that will let you listen to the song:  http://www.abramsbooks.com/MaytheStarsDripDown/

You might want to play that while you and your child settle down for the night.  You can read along or sing along to it.  Just make sure you don't fall asleep, too.
