River Rose and the Magical Lullaby is beauty at its best. In this precious book, River Rose is so excited that she will be going on her first trip to the zoo. In fact, she is just so excited that she can't fall asleep! When her mom comes in to sing her a lullaby, she settles in for the night, only to be shortly awakened by a noise outside. River Rose goes on an adventure for the imagination when a handful of magical balloons appear outside her window. It looks like River Rose will not have to wait any longer to experience her first zoo trip! A magical journey awaits!
This book, inspired by Kelly Clarkson's very own daughter, is an instant classic. Young readers and parents alike will love to read about the adventures of sweet River Rose. Laura Hughes has done a wonderful job of illustrating this book as the colors and drawings pop off the page and create a visualization that is very pleasing to the eye. Kelly Clarkson makes a wonderful transition from singer to author. River Rose and the Magical Lullaby would be a welcome addition to any child's bookshelf.
