Child's Lullaby

Written by D.B. Pacini-Christensen & Recorded by Tim Christensen
© All Rights Reserved

I wrote the lyrics to this lullaby in December 1981 for my son. I sing it without instrumental accompaniment to "Brahms’ Lullaby" composed by Johannes Brahms in 1868. I dedicate this song and picture book to homeless children, children living in foster care, children of police officers, firefighters, and first-responders, children of our military men and women, refugee children, asylum-seeking children, and children suffering from fires, super storms, hurricanes, and other natural disasters.

Most of the text in this book is Comic Sans 18-font bold. It is a popular font for visually impaired and dyslexic readers. It is also a font many young readers can read with ease.

Starry Night Encyclopedia: We will include a unique encyclopedia created especially for children and teens very soon. It will contain interesting and little known facts about animals, insects, and enchanting creatures, some of which are imaginary. We urge children and teens always to read a comprehensive encyclopedia resource if they are researching, but also, to review our encyclopedia. We do not claim to be an exhaustive, complete source about any listing in our encyclopedia. Rather, we intend to provide little known facts, entertaining anecdotes, and we wish to help debunk false myths and claims.

Please review the section below for information about the generous illustrators and photographers that are featured in this book.
