Lala Salama A Tanzanian Lullaby


Written by: Patricia MacLachlan  Illustrated by: Elizabeth Zunon

A breezy lullaby takes a mom and baby through their day. Lil Bug and her brother love Zunon’s illustrations of the baby in a carrier on his mother’s back as she gathers water, works the fields and cooks the food. Mom enjoys feeling her baby’s heartbeat and whispers “Lala salama” (sleep peacefully).

Lil Bug says: We can see lights but we don’t know which are daddy’s. Hush, go to sleep, Lala Salama. Listen to the fire while cleaning daddy’s rowboat off. Hush. I liked this book, it was a library book.
