I thought I was past the whole need-for-a-lullaby thing until my five year old started whispering I’m Scared into my ear every night at 2AM. Now, I think he needs a little Charlie Hope crooning into his ear from her World of Dreams CD, to help chill him out at night.
Charlie’s voice is perfect for lullabies: Soft, gentle and warm like a mama’s hand stroking her little guy’s face. That is, if that mama wasn’t already downstairs trying to clean up the dinner dishes. I’ve tried lying down and listening to it with him, but her lullabies affect me like an Ambien.
Trust me, this is a way cooler baby gift than those lullabies that turn hard rock into muzak.
I discovered Charlie’s lushly gorgeous voice on her debut CD, I’m Me!
As with that first release, World of Dreams
is unabashedly a children’s CD–no wink-wink lyrics or indie 80’s riffs thrown in for us parents. Just sweet lyrics that express all those loving sentiments we all try to tell our kids. But I’ll let Charlie Hope put these words to music since my son’s already told me that my voice is scarier than whatever is under his bed. -Christina
