Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Gr 3-8-Seventeen previously unrecorded lullabies are included in this book that benefits breast cancer research. In the foreword, Julie Andrews and Emma Walton Hamilton write, "a lullaby is an offering of love," and this project, with its approximately 100 contributors, represents a whole lotta love. Dawson and Glucksman have assembled notable composers and lyricists, singers and musicians, as well as illustrators to work on each song-Jules Feiffer, Barry Moser, Melissa Sweet, Jon Muth, and Marc Simont are some of the stellar artists. The contributors' notes make for exciting reading. Lullabies of many varieties and hues include "It Takes All Kinds" by Stephen Sondheim; "It takes bimbos,/It takes dumbos/It takes rambos/And Columbos" is sung with a poignant earnestness by Dana Ivey and Walter Charles. A few are heart-wrenching, such as a song for a baby surrounded by tubing and wires, wearing "the tiniest onesie of them all" (music by Wayne Barker; lyrics by BD Wong). Feel-good songs include Michael La Chuiusa's meditation on parenthood: "How much love can a heart hold/Before it fills and overflows" and the classic "The Man Who Invented Ice Cream." This collection is perfect for a shower, as an elementary classroom read or listen, or as a gift of comfort and love.-Teresa Pfeifer, Alfred Zanetti Montessori Magnet School, Springfield, MAα(c) Copyright 2011.

Format: Hardcover
Let's face it, first-time moms need lots of "stuff:" diaper pails, car seats, pack 'n plays and more. But if it's a mom's second or third baby, she might be up to her eyeballs in onesies and bibs. Finding just the right gift can be a struggle.

Enter "Over the Moon." The CD of lullabies is written and sung by some of Broadway's greatest talents, while the 46-page hardcover book is illustrated by children's book greats like Gregory Christie, Paul Zelinsky, John J. Muth and Melissa Sweet. No matter what you choose, a portion of your dollars will fund two breast cancer charities, the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and Young Survival Coalition, as well as the Public Interest Projects. I love product that allow me to give and "give back" at the same time.

As a friend of many young women who have faced breast cancer or who are currently struggling, I can think of no better gift for new moms. This beautiful collection is now one of my go-to gifts for the mom who has almost everything.

After reading the reviews I was excited to purchase this book for my grandson and another one for a gift. Unfortunately there was not a look inside option, and so I trusted the reviews on the content of the songs. As I read through the book I found three songs which I would not like to sing to my grandson or to give as a gift--the song, A lullaby for MIdnight has the word die in it (while otherwise is a beautiful song, there is a song titled,"Onesie" in which the birth of a premature baby is described--not my favorite description of a premature baby, and there is a song, Yolanda, who "the moment she started to wander, Her ma shoved her into a box".
The illustrations are beautiful and all the other words are beautiful. I will not get to hear the lyrics sung because I am returning the two books purchased. The cause is a good one, and I hate to have to give up the book--perhaps it can be reviewed by the authors and they can eliminate these songs--it would be a definite purchase if this happens--otherwise I am sorry for the return.

I hadn’t listened to the CD for several months after I received it. When I did, I discovered it was defective. Since it was well over the time allowed for return, I thought I would not be able to share the music with my grandchildren. However, the CD was replaced. We appreciate being
accommodated and are enjoying the music.

As a mom and musician, we love this project. My 2 kids love Broadway and I love listening along. The fact that it supports a good cause is icing on the cake!
