9780064433198: Nine O'Clock Lullaby

When it′s 9 P.M. in Brooklyn, it′s 10 P.M. in Puerto Rico, and midnight on the mid-atlantic. Far from the vroom of New York traffic, the Puerto Rican night is filled with conga music, sweet rice, and fruit ice. In India, villagers begin their morning chores as well ropes squeak, buckets splash, and bracelets jangle. Meanwhile, in Australia, a sly kookaburra is ready for a noontime feast.

Marilyn Singer′s rhythmic lullaby, with bright illustrations by Franc. Lessac, gently transports children through different time zones and distant lands. Young readers will travel far from home, then back again, on a glorious bedtime journey.

Ages 5+

About the Author:

Marilyn Singer has written over fifty books for young readers, including poetry, fairy tales, mysteries, and young adult novels. Marilyn and her husband, Steve Aronson, live in Brooklyn, New York, where the weather in March is sometimes stormy and cold and sometimes warm and sunny.

Frané Lessac is an American who has traveled all over the world. She now lives in Fremantle, Australia, but always looks forward to visiting Texas with her family. To bring the Lone Star State to life with gouache paints, Frané did extensive research using a video camera, a still camera, and actual and virtual tours. She is the illustrator of more than thirty books for children, including Capital! Washington D.C. from A to Z and New York, New York! The Big Apple from A to Z, both by Laura Krauss Melmed.

From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 2-- Beginning (and ending) in Brooklyn at bedtime, this picture book jumps a step east around the world, where the same moment becomes a different hour in 15 different time zones. Singer's brief narrative contains cultural and auditory cues, humor, and some interesting connections. Lessac's paintings are lively and detailed, in her familiar naive style. It would be hard to imagine her work without its vibrant colors, but here they work against the grain. Uniformly gay pages and flat light sacrifice part of the sense-experience of difference. Although half the book occurs at dusk or night, when "all cats are gray," Lessac's glowing palette remains constant. Switzerland and Zaire at 3 a.m. are just as colorfully bright as Sydney at noon. Nor are the essential props, a globe and clock, incorporated into the work. In any case, the concept of time zones may be beyond the grasp of the intended audience. What this title does convey is the connectedness of the inhabitants of our global village. --Patricia Dooley, University of Washington, Seattle
