This is a dream come true, in more ways than one… My children’s lullabye book, titled It’s Time to Sleep, My Love is in stores TODAY!!! I wrote this children’s lullabye poem thirteen years ago and always knew it was destined to be a children’s picture book, but I never dreamt it would take so long, nor that it would be so gorgeous when it finally arrived. How it came into being is a genuine miracle, the details of which I’ll tell another time. But the magnificent illustrations are by the children’s book superstar Nancy Tillman, whose last book rocketed to #2 on the New York Times Bestseller lists and has already sold over half a million copies. The buzz on this book is so good that Feiwel & Friends has come out of the blocks with a first printing of 175,000 copies. And they’re also about to release an audio cd of Sally Taylor — the daughter of music legends Carly Simon and James Taylor — singing the words of the poem as an actual lullabye. She composed and recorded it just in time for her son, Bodhi’s first birthday this week! Happy Birthday Bodhi!!!

I must add that this is the only book I’ve written that will put people to sleep intentionally! So if you know anyone with a child who needs a good book to read at bedtime… this might be the ticket…
