This beloved poem by Langston Hughes, in picture-book form for the first time and illustrated by the award-winning Sean Qualls, is an irresistible celebration of poetry and the love between mother and baby.
Langston Hughes penned many well-known poems, such as "The Negro Speaks of Rivers," "I, Too, Sing America," and "The Dream Keeper." A renowned contributor to New York City's Harlem Renaissance, he died in 1967.
"Hughes' classic lullaby gets a loving lift with Quall's graceful artwork."
"A wonderful celebration of both love and poetry."
