Title: Lullaby (for A Black Mother)*

Contributors: Langston Hughes & Sean Qualls

Format: Hardcover

Age Range: Ages 4 to 7, Grades P to 3

This beloved poem by Langston Hughes, in picture-book form for the first time and illustrated by the award-winning Sean Qualls, is an irresistible celebration of poetry and the love between mother and baby.

“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 an African American 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.
