River Rose and the Magical Lullaby
It's a big day for River Rose she's going to the zoo! But when she's too excited to fall asleep the night before, it takes a magical lullaby from Mom to send River Rose off on a dream adventure! Soon River Rose is hopscotching with the hippos, slip-sliding with the penguins, and dancing with the big brown bears. It's a rollicking, rhyming tale from America’s most beloved performer, recording star Kelly Clarkson. Join along on this bedtime journey with an original lullaby that parents and kids are sure to love!
River Rose landed down in the center of the zoo.
And right around the corner came a bouncy kangaroo.
He was just about to ask if there was something he could do,
when River Rose jumped up and said, "We've come to play with you!"
River is the most adorable little girl who only wants to go to the zoo. She's able to get there for an all-night party with the animals and party they shall. Sitting down with my niece to put her down for a nap with this book was probably a mistake because all she wanted was for me to read it again and again. Then when she woke up, she insisted on carrying it around to show the pictures to anyone who would look.
The pictures are emotive and cute. The words flow of your tongue, making it much more pleasant to read the same book a million times. It's poetic and simple. The rhymes never once lean toward the cheesy side. There isn't a single thing not to like about this story or the way it's presented.
