Lullabies for Babies and Parents

Looking for lullaby music to share with your little one, but want something different that might appeal to your music taste too? Lullaby albums based on popular adult music are an increasingly popular option from music labels these days. The library aims to offer something for everyone's perspective and taste, and the Juvenile Music CD collection offers a variety of these lullaby albums for you to check out:

Hushabye Baby offers a series of albums featuring lullaby renditions of a variety of musicians, including Carrie Underwood, Rascall Flatts, Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash, Patsy Cline, and Willie Nelson.

Maybe you prefer something with more of an edge or a rock sensibility. You may enjoy the Rockabye Baby! series of lullaby renditions of music groups such as AC/DC, Bob Marley, Christmas Rock Classics, the Cure, Coldplay, Led Zeppelin, Nirvana, No Doubt, Pink Floyd, the Beach Boys, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, and Tool.

Rockabye Baby! has this goal: " [to transform] timeless rock songs into instrumental lullabies using instruments such as the glockenspiel, vibraphone, mellotron, harp and bells to create a soothing atmosphere of sound for the very young."

Or perhaps you'd like to share worship music in a lullaby-format with your child. The library's collection contains Sleepytime Worship cds featuring the music of Jars of Clay and Amy Grant.

The library is always open to suggestions, too. If there are music selections you'd like the library to purchase, feel free to place a purchase request online here.
