My experience with your songs started in 1991 when I was born, and my mom would rock me and sing me to sleep to your songs every night, until the tragically passed away when I was seven years old. When my son was born, my aunt gifted me your CD and I immidiately recognized all the songs and still remembered all the words. I played the songs for my son every night and now I play them for my daughter every night. I hope someday they will do the same for their children and carry on the tradition!

I received A Child's Gift of Lullabyes 29 years ago when my son was born. In 1990 I wrote a letter to you telling you how much I loved the "tape". You used some part of my letter for marketing and sent me a new tape and the Rockabye Collection as I was expecting my 2nd child at that time. My 3rd child also went to sleep with it. 10 years ago I bought the cd for my great nephew. He listened to it every night to go to sleep. Best part was that I still remembered the words to the songs. Now my children and their friends are having babies and I am buying more of the cd's for them. I explain to them that if the cd doesn't calm the baby down it will at least calm them down. I think it is the best lullabye music around.

It's Christmas Eve 2016, and this will be my first Christmas without my twins- Em & El. They were born Oct. 7, 1999 and from their 1st night home, every night and every nap time we listened to Vol. 2 lullabyes (handed down to us by my hubby's sister) They were, and still are, good sleepers. They both still sleep 9-10 hrs. We homeschooled and I stayed at home. So now at 17 yrs. old they decided they want to move in with their Dad (we divorced in 2010) So I was feeling nostalgic & sentimental tonight, reminiscing about those two little babes and I Googled ya! Thank you so much for helping me survive twins! Sincerely, Krista K.-empty nester mom

I was reminiscing about my Mother Goose Lamp I had as a child with my children, ages 3 and 6. While I have remembered these songs albeit incorrectly, I have been able to sing these songs to my children throughout their young lives. I have not been able to identify the stories that were on the reverse side of the cassette tape though. If anyone has information on the stories or reverse side of the tape, please contact me! I am feeling nostalgic and want to share this also with my littles!

I began playing your albums to my first grandchild 18 years ago...and continued with each of the other 3 as they came along. Rachel, the oldest, is off to college this year and the song, "Little Wings", is even more meaningful now. I have a friend who is waiting for her first grandchild and would love to know where I might be able to purchase your beautiful albums for her.

I received a cassette tape of A Child's Gift of Lullabyes from a friend when my now almost 26 year old was born. I loved those songs. They soothed me, as well as my son, as I held him and rocked him to sleep.When I hear one of the songs now it brings back sweet memories. I have looked for this on CD, but have read reviews where some are by various artists and not Tanya Goodman. What about the one you have on your website? I would like to give them as baby gifts when possible.

My brother found the song Wings for me and totally made my day! I absolutely love that song and have been looking for it for over 10 years. I can't wait to play it for my future kids someday. Thank you for such a wonderful song!

I purchased your cd when my youngest daughter was a colicky infant. The sweet melodies would calm her almost instantly and allow her to go to sleep. It seriously was like medicine for her and for me, the mommy. Years later when we became custodial parents to a little one year old, i would rock him and sing the songs off of your cd to calm him down. Our favorite was the song "Wings". We only had the baby for one week at first and when he was returned to our care several months later, i began to sing the songs to him again. He took my face into his tiny hands and his eyes looked so sweetly at me as if to say, "I really didn't just dream this." Now, eight years later, the little boy has grown but our new grandson goes to sleep for his nap each day listening to the same exact cd. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for blessing our family with music that we will cherish for generations to come. We love each and every song.

Could you please clear up the confusion existing about the "A child's gift of lullabyes" Is there an original Cd with a single artist Tanya Goodman and a current version with "various artists"? Are these recordings one and the same?
Rock a Bye and A Childs Gift collections are the best lullabyes I've ever known! Beautiful, peaceful, happy. My kids are 20, 22. and 24 now and I was listening to the songs again the other day. They just filled me to the brim. Beautiful music bringing back beautiful memories. Thank you so much for these lullabyes. You all did a fantastic job!

Sorry, this is a bit lengthy, but I felt compelled to share.When my daughter was a toddler, I purchased a Mother Goose Story Teller Lamp that had a cassette tape with A Child's Gift of Lullabyes on one side and stories on the other. We played the songs every night at bath time. A few years ago, I found the cd online, secretly bought it and on a trip with my daughter, pushed the play button in the car. The music started and look in her eyes said it all, as excitedly she turned to me and asked, "Where did you find that?!" What wonderful memories it brought! Fast forward until today, and she has a 3 month old daughter of her own. Guess what is in my car, and upon hearing it for the first time, calmed her crying in the back seat (by herself), on her way to Grandma's house...all the way home? Dream Theme. I told my daughter this on the phone and she couldn't believe it! This is THE best collection that I have ever heard, and I have purchased a lot. I just found your newer ones here and you can rest assured that I will certainly be purchasing them for my sweet Elora. You truly have a great songwriting and musical writing/production team. Thank you so much for sharing your talents.

My mum played this for me and my sister when we were little! Hearing this again is such a childhood memory.
