 Listen to an excerpt



Story by Patrick Lacoursière Illustrated by Sylvie Bourbonnière Performed by Sylva Balassanian, Mary Fujiwara Burke, Juan Jose Carranza, Hart-Rouge, H’sao, Paul Kunigis and Nathalie Picard

The mellifluous sounds of world music lullabies resonate from Mali to Louisiana within this picture book-CD set of 14 songs. Able voices bring songs from places like Armenia, Spain, South Africa, Mali, Costa Rica, Japan and Poland, sung in the language of the country, granting the mind's eye incentive for adventure. The richly-hued earth tones found in the book's illustrations that go with the bedtime story, presented in English, French and Spanish, bare the cultural ambience of the title. Babies can drift off to dreamland with melodies expertly performed by a breathtaking 30 different instruments.

With captivating rhythms and reassuring voices. PARIS FRIMOUSSE
