New Bedtime Story by Author, Songwriter Andy Gutman Presents Lyrical Alternative to Counting Sheep

Dog Ear Publishing reviews a new children’s book that follows the journey of one tired father and his wide-awake baby in this sweet and gentle bedtime story.

Novi, MI, May 02, 2018 --( Getting a baby or young child to fall asleep can sometimes be a daunting task. Andy Gutman has released his second book with Dog Ear Publishing that celebrates the love between parent and child and tackles the problem of what to do when a child just cannot fall asleep.

“Pop Lullaby” presents scenarios familiar to many parents: a hungry baby, crying as loud as a drumbeat and stubbing a toe on a piece of nursery furniture. The father’s solutions to the situation of a baby who won’t sleep include taking a drive in the car, rocking gently and the most effective of all: singing a lullaby.

The rhyming poetry of the book gently soothes readers and children alike, read aloud as a lullaby in words. The moon and stars may be bright, but so is the bond between father and baby. The bright, bold illustrations charmingly capture the frustration – but also the love – between a sometimes-exasperated father and his beloved child.

Those facing similar situations with their own children have additional help from an unexpected source: a companion song titled “Pop Lullaby,” which is available on such sites as iTunes, iTunes streaming and Spotify.

Andy Gutman is a businessman, author and songwriter who tries to see the beauty in the world. He wrote the book “Charlie the Caterpillar,” also released by Dog Ear Publishing. He and his wife, Lesley, are the parents of daughter Riley Claire. Andrew Capra contributed to the project.
