The amazing art is rendered in scratchboard and digital color by Evangelia Philippidis, a nationally recognized illustrator and instructor at Columbus College of Art and Design.

The Story of YUCATECAN LULLABY

My American daughter Susanna lives in Mérida, Yucatán, Mexico with her Mexican husband Nolo and their baby Olivia. The lullaby was a collaborative baby gift. I wrote the lyrics, Susanna's friend Eric composed the music, and her friend Stephanie (Eric's wife) beautifully sang the lullaby for a YouTube video she created. (Her  new YouTube video uses the illustrations from this book, and features Stephanie singing the melody and Susanna singing the alto part. You can find the link at nancymckibben.com/yucatecan-lullaby.)

 My lyrics reflect Olivia's home in Mérida, a beautiful colonial city just 21 degrees north of the equator and 30 miles south of the Gulf of Mexico. Susanna keeps cats and chickens, and little lizards and iguanas also show up frequently. Not to mention mice and birds.

 When the illustrator and I decided to make Lullaby for Olivia into a picture book, I changed the title to Yucatecan Lullaby. And we included jaguars and parrots and toucans and other animals that are native to the Yucatán Peninsula, but do not appear in Olivia's back yard.
