Twinkle twinkle little star baby song
Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star by Jane CabreraIn this day filled with picture books so clearly aimed at hipster librarians (I wince for the millionth time over nonsense like Kidslit Drink Night)and the sort of parents who think that traditional childrens music is boring, this is a lovely example of what picture books are supposed to be about--children--and of the reasons that traditional childrens music will survive the hipsters and live forever.
Cabrera has the talent to take a classic childrens song and turn it into something new and special.
Here she extends the classic lullaby with verse that is sweet, NOT saccharine, and perfectly catches what has made generations love and sing this song. Her bright art with strong lines always has tremendous child appeal and the animal parents and babies here shine with love as bright as the stars pictured above them. I am already planning to use this at story hours for toddlers and preschoolers and may even use it at my infant program.

Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star
The tune is even older. It comes from France and was first published in Up above the world so high, Like a diamond in the sky! When the blazing sun is gone, When he nothing shines upon, Then you show your little light, Twinkle, twinkle, all the night. Then the traveler in the dark, Thanks you for your tiny spark, He could not see which way to go, If you did not twinkle so. In the dark blue sky you keep, And often through my curtains peep, For you never shut your eye, Till the sun is in the sky. As your bright and tiny spark, Lights the traveller in the dark,- Though I know not what you are, Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
