Alaska  Lullaby

"With the sun's rise I love you,
when the moon lights the skies above you,
when the dog wags his tail,
when the wind finds a sail,
now and forever, I love you"

Designed and produced by Lynn McCarron, composed by Mary Jane Riemann, illustrated by Joy Steuerwald. A love song and board book celebrating the beauty of Alaska. This is a children's board book, complete with a QR code on the back, so you can scan it and hear the song while looking at the book with the little ones!
Anchorage, July 31st, 2013
Over The Rainbow Toys announced today that they will host the official launch of Alaska Lullaby,a new children’s book based on a song by Anchorage musician and songwriter

and beautiful paintings of our great state,” says Janet Gregory, owner of Over The
Rainbow Toys. “Every time I hear the song, it just makes me want to hug my kids!
And we’re really happy to be able to support the thread Book Party, because literacy
is so important in early childhood. Starting early, reading simple and evocative books
like this to baby at bedtime, encourages a life‐long love of reading.”
