PEOPLE LEARN TO SING with one of these gorgeous little bundles in their arms – if only to drown out the “singing” powered by heartier, healthier infant lungs. It’s well over twenty-five years since I first “wrote” some baby-song lyrics of our own to Brahms’ Lullaby, but they came back to me tonight, and to good effect – though I’d forgotten the tininess and the nervousness in the first holding. Night night Jack Robert – and his clever old Mum and Dad xx

I’ve immediately ordered my copy of Banyan and I shall think of “My Brother’s Lullaby” as well as of my own children and grandchildren next time I hear a Brahms Bunny. Wonderful. Thank you – to the author, and to the technical serendipity that linked two mentions of a best loved lullaby …
