Goodnight, My Angel

A Lullabye: Lullabye

By Billy Joel; Yvonne Gilbert (Illustrator)

Scholastic Press, Hardcover, 9780439553766, 32pp.

Publication Date: October 1, 2004


Legendary performer Billy Joel's heartwarming lovesong from parent to child is now a book for families to treasure.

Time to close your eyes
And save these questions for another day
Goodnight my angel
Now it's time to sleep
And still so many things I want to say.

With words as tender as a kiss on the cheek, Billy Joel reassures readers young and old that the love between a parent and child lasts forever, even if families are separated. Dreamy paintings of a father and daughter illustrate the profound ways that small moments -- like tucking a child into bed -- affirm parents' devotion to their children.
