Violin Lullabies by Rachel Barton Pine - Give-away!


When Neal was first born someone gave us a CD of classical music that was supposed to calm him when he was fussy. Utah Dad and I fell in love with that CD during the first few month's of parenthood. We played it nearly every evening during dinner prep--you know, that especially fussy time for babies. Not only did the music sooth Neal but it helped to calm Utah Dad and I as well. We became convinced of the magical powers of beautiful, classic music.

Rachel Barton Pine is an international concert violinist and a new mom. While she, her husband and her new baby travel around the world performing her music, she found that music also soothed her baby. For them, music became a way to relax and reconnect. Even though my babies are getting so big and are all at school, I've been listening to Rachel's music and I find that I enjoy it so much. 

Rachel has put together her own CD of Violin Lullabies, which features 25 songs that will help make bedtime  (or dinner time) with your little one that much more enjoyable. And believe me, this CD would make a great gift for any new mom.


In anticipation and celebration of the release of Rachel's new CD, there are five copies of Violin Lullabies available for give-away to my lucky readers.
