by | Read by Amy Hanaiali'i Gilliom

Children Ages 4-6 • 30 min. • Unabridged • © 2007

What a perfect read-along for bedtime, with its mellow narration, gentle guitar music, and background sounds of twittering birds, shushing waves, and chirping tree frogs. Amy Hanaiali'i Gilliom sets the mood with her Hawaiian-accented voice and soothing, playful reading. It's also a great introduction for young listeners to some of the special aspects of Hawaiian culture--cute watercolor illustrations in the accompanying book show hibiscus flowers, paniolo horses, geckos, and nenes all getting ready to sleep for the night. The audio presentation, though, is what really stands out--the CD even includes a lovely Hawaiian-language version of Brahms' "Lullaby," sung beautifully by Gilliom. The whole package will inspire sweet dreams, for sure. J.M.D. 2008 Audies Finalist © AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2008]
