Lullabies Around the World: Bernardo Strozzi, Sleeping Child, 1607

Lullabies

Please enjoy these traditional lullabies, also known as cradle or sleep songs, from around the world, to celebrate one of the most special times of the day: bedtime. Parents can help their young ones relax and settle in for the night by dimming the lights, rubbing baby's back or rocking baby to sleep while singing a soothing song or two. Sweet dreams!
