Description

Lullaby (For a Black Mother) (Hardcover)
By Langston Hughes, illustrated by Sean Qualls

My little dark baby,
My little earth-thing,
My little love-one,
What shall I sing
For your lullaby?

With a few simple words as smooth as a song, the poet Langston Hughes celebrates the love between a Black mother and her baby. The award-winning illustrator Sean Qualls’s painted and collaged artwork captures universally powerful maternal moments with tenderness and whimsy. In the end, readers will find a rare photo of baby Hughes and his mother, a biographical note, further reading, and the complete lullaby. Like little love-ones, this beautiful book is a treasure.

“Hughes’s classic lullaby gets a loving lift with Qualls’s graceful artwork.” (Booklist)

“A wonderful celebration of both love and poetry.” (School Library Journal)

“A quiet but welcome introduction to the writer’s work for the very young.” (Publishers Weekly)

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
