Beloved children’s poet and anthologizer Lee Bennett Hopkins has produced more than 100 volumes of poetry throughout his illustrious career, but Lullaby and Kisses Sweet is his first collection geared toward babies and toddlers. Featuring 30 original poems by esteemed children’s writers like Jane Yolen, Marilyn Singer, and J.

This beautifully designed casebound board book is organized into five themes—Family, Food, “Firsts,” Playtime, and Bedtime—while cuddly, anthropomorphized animals make the poems friendly and relatable. Lullaby and Kisses Sweet fosters the love of poetry and is the perfect gift for babies, toddlers, and their poetry-loving parents.
