Spending more time with Karen Cioffi

Posted on Sep 02 2009

Karen's bookYesterday Karen gave us advice on online career opportunities. Today, we’re taking a look at her book, Day’s End Lullaby.  The book, written with Robyn Feltman, provides a lyrical bedtime story to remind children their beloved toys will be waiting for them when they awake the next morning.

Reviewer Wayne Walker had this to day about Day’s End Lullaby:

“Reading aloud before bedtime serves several purposes. First, it is an opportunity for personal interaction between parent and child. Second, it is helpful in getting settled down for children who have been playing for a while to have a period of transition between the activities of the day and the need to rest at night. This picture book is perfect for that purpose. It has the additional benefit that the text has been set to music, and the lullaby is included. Author Karen Cioffi says that she wrote the lullaby to the story over 30 years ago for her firstborn who didn’t like sleeping. This is one of those books that wee ones will probably want read over and over to them.”

Amazon customer G. Trivelli says, “This is an adorable story that I read this to my son every night. The illustrations are soothing, and it is a great way to end a child’s day.”

Check out Day’s End Lullaby at Amazon, especially if you have a little someone who hates bedtime.

    Hi Karen,
    I am thrilled that you have music with your book. That is awesome! Is that the music that is played on the Within Site? You are truly an inspiration and Day’s End is colorful and a great way to say GOOD night.

  7. I still love bedtime stories, reading them to my kids and reminiscing when I was a child having my parents read to me. I love the classics as well as the new stories. best wishes for your success.
