And now… the song!

HAVE YOU HEARD IT YET???

I’m talking about the lullabye that Sally Taylor — daughter of James Taylor and Carly Simon — wrote to go along with my children’s book, It’s Time to Sleep, My Love? It’s gorgeous.

And now you can listen to it yourselves! HERE IT IS!

. When I wrote the poem/lullabye/book thirteen years ago the voice that I kept hearing in my head singing it was always that of James Taylor. Or Carly Simon. And in a way both of them are now singing the song — and with one voice! Sally Taylor’s voice and phrasing and talents clearly bring her parents to mind, as you can hear for yourself. Of course Sally’s now a mother herself — of one-year-old Bodhi! He turned one the same week as the book came out, in early October! It’s rather obvious that she’s singing the song to him…

If you’d like a copy of the book or the audio cd, you can still order both of them in time for Christmas via the book links on this site. I’m biased, but I do think it makes a great present. Nancy Tillman’s illustrations are amazing and the song is amazing and Sally Taylor’s voice is amazing and I’m just thrilled about it. Blessings to you and Merry Christmas!
