The Grammy-winning duo of authors/musicians Cathy Fink and Marcy Marxer are releasing their latest family-focused book and CD, Sing To Your Baby, on May 3, just in time for Mother’s Day. The book is a playfully illustrated guide for parents who might be self-conscious about going beyond the occasional quiet lullaby for their newborns. Writing from the point of view of a music-loving baby, the book tells new parents, “I don’t care if you are a professional singer or even a good singer. Relax—I think you’re a star!” The accompanying CD has 11 simple, upbeat original songs like “Rockin’ My Baby,” “Bouncing,” and “Baby’s Got a Giggle,” each of which is presented in “Mom” and “Dad” versions, set in appropriate keys so anyone can hit the right notes. The back of the book also includes a Parent Guide that highlights the many upsides of singing to and with your child.
Barista Kids has 1 copy of Sing To Your Baby to give away. All you need to do is answer this question:
What is the name of the traditional French song that provides the melody for “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” and “The Alphabet Song”? The first person to e-mail their name and the correct answer to firstname.lastname@example.org wins the book and CD!
