Young and old alike will cheer and sing along with this heartfelt picture book about pet adoption based on a new song by Academy Award-winning singer-songwriter Buffy Sainte-Marie. In this tender and moving picture book, a puppy is looking for someone to love him. Will the girl who rescues him convince her parents to let her keep the little dog? Buffy Sainte-Marie advocates putting the songs to work and, like her other lyrics, Hey Little Rockabye conveys an important message about finding love and acceptance. Brought to life in charming illustrations by Ben Hodson, Hey Little Rockabye shares a not-yet-released song with the world for the first time. With the release of the first-ever recording to coincide with the publication of the book, Hey Little Rockabye can now be read-or sung-by old and young alike for years to come.
While the calming, rhythmic refrain [...] offers a soothing sense of security, there's also a spontaneous, improvisational feel to this catchy song. -Quill & Quire It's sweet and heartfelt. -Kirkus Reviews
