From sunset to bedtime, one very active baby keeps Momma and Papi busy…but yummy tummy kisses and warm snuggles make this bebito sleepy, just in time for bed.

With Spanish words sprinkled throughout and featuring warm art by New York Times-bestselling and NAACP-Award-winning illustrator AG Ford, Brown Baby Lullaby is the perfect baby or baby shower gift.


“Brown and Ford make an outstanding team, drawing together realistic illustrations, gentle words, and beautiful phrases often uttered by parents to communicate love and acceptance to their children.” —Booklist

“The springy rhyme is sweet without being saccharine, and touches of Spanish and neat phrasing add verve. This has high baby shower appeal, but it also has vigor, snap, and charm, to suit the actual kid audience.” —BCCB

“Chronicling the nighttime routine of a family, Brown has penned a bedtime story that is immediately warm and relatable for families with young children. With the rhythmic text and engaging illustrations, here’s a book that could become part of yours.” ―Horn Book
