What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this album includes more-than-appropriate bedtime music for kids. Most of the lyrics reference child-friendly topics like animals, flowers, the moon, and stars: "The shadows are waltzing / The moon beams are calling / Like a dream I am falling into / Silver threads lined with dew / Twinkling stars seem to shine just for you."

What's the story?

From her recent stint on Dancing with the Stars to her new album LULLABY, country-esque crooner Jewel has certainly run the creativity gamut as of late. The record is a compilation of traditional lullabies (and lullaby-like) songs -- such as "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" and "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" -- and Jewel's own new tunes, most of which are very, very sweet love songs, but love songs nevertheless. That said, none of the lyrics, new or old, contain anything offensive, instead painting largely rosy pictures of peace and love.

Is it any good?

Jewel's vocals have always had a simple yet lovely quality that shows through in these songs. She uses her pipes to turn every track on this album into something soothing enough to put a tired soul to sleep. Highlights include her own song "Raven," which pairs her pure vocals with painfully beautiful music and endearing lyrics ("Let's dream, together, you and I / Oh, close your eyes, we will fly / Dreaming, together, you and I"), and her contemporary treatment of the classic "Brahm's Lullaby."

  • Families can talk about using peaceful sounds and imagery to get to sleep. What are some feel-good things you can think of that make you feel content? Is there a nice song -- or even a soothing voice -- that makes you feel safe when you hear it?
