Good but boring

I like this book but I find that it helps me fall asleep! I like stories a bit more than poems, and lullabies. It is not my favourite!

Eh

The poems are on the sappy side. Julie Andrews is as wonderful a reader as you’d expect, but her daughter reads almost half and isn’t as good.

A Lovely Collection and Enjoyable Listening

Lovely poetry read by Julie Andrews Edwards and her own daughter. I purchased this to share with my grandchildren. It is soothing background for them now but hopefully they will enjoy it as they get older.

I knew several of the selections while others were totally new, including some written by the narrators. The selections were organized in nice themed groups including humor and nature. I really enjoyed the readings by mother and daughter.

Good collection of poems.

Any additional comments?

Julie Andrews and her daughter Emma have compiled a good list of poems that I've never heard and some of which are written by themselves or family members. This is an enjoyable listen. Need something to calm down? Something soothing for your kids to listen to right before bed? I imagine that this fits the bill.
