Mama Can You Turn On the Moon?
Winner Children’s Choice of the Month by Kindersinger’s Musical Notes

Listen to a sample of the recording here
 

This lullaby was inspired by Chris’s young son who asked her to “turn off the moon” because it was shining in his eyes at bedtime.

This book/CD has 32 pages of full-color illustrations by award-winning artist, Betty Foltz. The CD allows you to choose a version of Chris singing, or an orchestra alone track, so you can sing to your child.
