From School Library Journal
PreS–A singsong rhyme documents a toddler's going-to-sleep rituals. After dinner, Mom, Dad, and the little girl say good night to toys and a busy day, and a splash-a-bye stanza accompanies bathtime. Rock-a-bye, rock-a-bye,/baby mine... is for singing, clapping, and hugging before she quiets down for a bedtime story. Lull-a-bye, lull-a-bye,/tucked in tight./Lull-a-bye, lull-a-bye,/sweet dreams…/Good night brings the book full circle. The childlike illustrations done in fuzzy pastel colors depict a gentle family enjoying this special time together. Though the book's rhythm and images are appropriately sweet and quiet, they also seem somewhat distant. With the plethora of bedtime books available, this one is additional.–Julie Roach, Cambridge Public Library, MA

Lull-A-Bye, Little One by Dianne Ochiltree takes the child from dinner through family bedtime rituals. The child says goodnight to a busy day of toys and play, takes a bath, sings silly songs, reads a story and rocks in daddy's arms with a snuggle and a hug. Then off goes the lights, eyes close and a lull-a-bye brings on sweet dreams.
The beautiful pastel illustrations are peaceful, soothing and inviting to both children and adults. The rhythm of the story is delightful and contributes to helping a child get ready for sleep.
Armchair Interviews says: This is a perfect bedtime story for children and one that will be requested again and again.
The book also helps reinforce some goals as parents. Bath-time is shown as a nightly occurance. The child assists the parents with picking up. And there is sense of repetition, family and joy in the bed-time rhythm. And for our house, this book is just an extra step in that rhythm.
This is one of our top 10 books in our house.
The book lays out a routine (dinner, putting toys away, bath, cuddle, reading, sleep) with wonderful text and drawings. Very calming and peaceful; I use it for our little girl's night-time routine.
The illustrations are very well done -- evocative and colorful, as well as emotionally positive -- both mother and father are represented. All are happy.
