Julie Andrews’ Collection of Poems, Songs, and Lullabies

CRITICS HAVE SAID

  • "This is a warmly sentimental collection, leavened with humor and poignancy, and though it appears marketed toward adults who will purchase it for their home collections, educators and librarians will also embrace it for its sincere advocacy of reading aloud. McMullan’s lush watercolor paintings add to the overall appeal of this well-crafted anthology." – School Library Journal
