From Hawaiian Lullaby they set the tone, and WOW! This Music could soothe the Wildest Beast. Would be a Good Weapon if we could play it for the Iraq enemy! They would see it our way and surrender!

Lullaby

This was great!
I love this cd and my son (15 months old) loves it too. Very nice to fall asleep to! A good mix of music very different than "normal" lullabies that are out there. Great addition to your children's CD collection.
