Pinkney, J. B. (2006). Hush, little baby. New York: Greenwillow Books. The family was trying to get the baby to stop crying while the mother was running errands so they sang her a song! In my opinion Hush, little baby with an excellent story. Really loved how colorful and bright the pictures were. The pictures really made the song come alive. I remember hearing the song as a child, but by being able to see the Beautiful pictures along with the story song it gave it whole another feel. I would definitely use it with infants.

In my opinion Peggony-po was a modern version of Pinocchio or a combination of Pinocchio and Moby Dick. The story was well written. I would definitely use it with young children. It was nicely illustrated. Even though it was wordy you also had enough to look at and hold their attention.

About Alvin Aileys life from when he was very young to when he moved to Los Angeles and up until he started his dance Theater. In my opinion I wouldn’t read this story again. I just could not get into it. I feel it is too long to read to a child. It had lovely art work so that helped me get through the biography. This would be better for a preteen.
