This book, in a sea of lovely picture books, grabs your eyes for its monochrome beauty, and then grabs your heart with its lullaby for a child. Parents and caretakers: prepare to use a few tissues when reading this book!
May the stars drip down light on you,
And you close your eyes to see the moon,
And sleep will pull you through.
May the starlight find you.
Thus begins the gorgeous lullaby “May the Stars Drip Down” by indie rock band Cub Country, now adapted into a beautiful bedtime book with illustrations by the acclaimed cut-paper artist Nikki McClure. McClure’s tender and intricate images, inspired by nature and the intense bond between parent and child, perfectly complement musician Jeremy Chatelain’s soothing lyrics. An audio download of the song is also included.
