Dreams Are Made for Children: Classic Jazz Lullabies by Misja Fitzgerald Michel


Some of the greatest jazz vocalists known throughout history converge on our newest compilation, Dreams Are Made for Children named after the famous song by Ella Fitzgerald. This 36-page hardcover is a collection of classic jazz lullabies for antsy babies and toddlers. In fact, the entire family can enjoy songs like Sarah Vaughan’s “Lullaby of Birdland,” Billie Holiday’s “God Bless the Child,” Peggy Lee’s rendition of “Summertime” and Mel Tormé’s “Hit the Road to Dreamland.” These are just a few of the 12 songs found on this book-CD.

Curated by Jazz musician, Misja Fitzgerald Michel, Dreams Are Made for Children is the perfect repertoire of great jazz melodies to calm any tot to sleep. Enjoy the beautiful illustrations created by French artist, Ilya Green.

Intended for infants and toddlers, this book and music cd set contains a selections from the golden age of jazz to help lull babies into a serene sleep.  The CD contains 15 popular jazz songs recorded by singing legends Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, and Chet Baker, among others.  I don’t normally listen to Jazz but I recognised many of the songs selected and found myself truly enjoying the selection.  It’s definitely a relaxing set of songs that were chosen!

The book contains lyrics, notes about each song and whimsical illustrations that work well with the tone of the music CD.  
This really is a must-have book for any jazz fans with a new baby or young child.  It’s also a great way to introduce your child to music they might not otherwise hear on a daily basis.
