The response to our appeal to help librarian and YA author Bridget Zinn has been truly outstanding. But there are still a few gems on the auction block that have not received the attention they deserve! I'll be spotlighting a few in the run-up to the auction's completion on May 30.
Overlooked Gem #2:
Dr. Kathy Reilly Fallon is donating a signed first edition hard copy
of “Heavenly Skies & Lullabies~Illustrated Song Book & CD”.
This is a lovely children’s song book and CD, accompanied by soothing and celestial illustrations. The book opens up to 11 enchanting lullabies, along with lyrics and music engravings for piano and guitar. Children blessings’ & prayers’ are integrated into each heart-warming illustration to set the tone for the lullabies.
Review From Publishers Weekly

by Staff — Publishers Weekly, 3/12/2007
Heavenly Skies & Lullabies features physician Kathy Reilly Fallon and restaurateur Frank Pellegrino wearing their performers’ hats and lending their voices to spare arrangements of 11 soothing lullabies for this book-and-CD package. All net proceeds from the project will go to World Vision, a Christian relief organization, specifically for the Hurricane Katrina Relief Fund. The illustrated book contains a foreword by Father Gerard Critch of the Diocese of Venice, Fla., and also includes a number of brief, child-friendly prayers as well as music and lyrics for each selection. Among the favorite lullabies on the recording are “Golden Slumbers,” “Hush Little Baby,” “Toora, Loora, Loora” and “Gaelic Cradle Song.”
