Recently, an enterprising young woman named Amy Robbins-Wilson contacted me. She has a Google alert for the word lullaby. Since my bedtime picture book is titled Day's End Lullaby, Amy found my site.
Here is a short description of Lullaby Link:
Lullabylink.com is dedicated to serving parents who would like to incorporate music into their lives with their children. At Lullabylink we believe in the power of music to link generations. We further believe that lullabies and baby music are crucial in the development of the arts in our culture. If our children learn that music comes only from “professionals” or from the t.v or radio box then they will learn to be consumers. If they learn that it comes from all people, they will learn to be creators.
Lullaby Link provides parents with lyrics and melodies to over 40 lullabies and ideas as to how to use music with their infant, their toddler and even with babies in the neonatal intensive care unit. Studies report that there is a decrease in the number of parents singing to their children. We hope to be a part of reversing that trend by encouraging parents and giving them the tools they need to interact with their children musically.
We invite you to Lullaby Link. Come get your free lullaby lyrics songbook and mp3’s! If you have any comments or suggestions for our site we would love to hear from you.
What a wonderful and unique idea.
I'm not going to give everything away now though, Amy will be our guest soon and we'll learn a lot more about her and Lullaby Link. Be sure to come back!
