Eh

The poems are on the sappy side. Julie Andrews is as wonderful a reader as you’d expect, but her daughter reads almost half and isn’t as good.

Good but boring

I like this book but I find that it helps me fall asleep! I like stories a bit more than poems, and lullabies. It is not my favourite!

A Lovely Collection and Enjoyable Listening

Lovely poetry read by Julie Andrews Edwards and her own daughter. I purchased this to share with my grandchildren. It is soothing background for them now but hopefully they will enjoy it as they get older.

I knew several of the selections while others were totally new, including some written by the narrators. The selections were organized in nice themed groups including humor and nature. I really enjoyed the readings by mother and daughter.
