Share the joy of music with our original singer-songwriter lullaby albums Down at the Sea Hotel and Tomorrow is a Chance to Start Over
Fourteen acoustic, soulful lullabies take young listeners through a fantastical trip to the “Sea Hotel.” An outstanding company of folk-roots singers from Minnesota’s Red House Records convene on this picture book with CD to offer a warm, rich sound. Babies, toddlers and adults alike, can enjoy nighttime songs written by some of North America’s most respected songwriters.
Ira and Isabelle, who live in a tiny red house by the sea, decide one night to escape the sound of the city’s beeping cars and sail off to a faraway land where they learn from a new friend—a robin with a soft voice—that dreams really can come true. The book contains an audio CD that features the narrated story as well as 10 original heartwarming dream songs, and an exquisite rendition of Johannes Brahms’ classic “Cradle Song.”
Unless you’d rather drop into a peaceful jazz slumber with Dreams Are Made for Children, or nod off on a classical note listening to Sleep Softly!
