1. AllMusic - Tim Sheridan
Herdman's rich, sweet voice makes these simple lullabies seem like cozy clouds for parents and kids alike. For every parent that's cringed to Barney and Elmo, here is a disc that you might throw on long after the little one's are tucked in bed. The musicianship, with guests like fiddlemaster Jay Ungar, is first rate to boot.

2. Chicago Tribune - Nancy Maes -, August 6, 1998
Priscilla Herdman's Moondreamer..... is a dream of a recording. Herdman is an ideal companion to the sandman. She sings tunes both contemporary and traditional that have a touch of silliness and lots of tenderness....."

A tender and witty collection of folk-style children's and family music which was selected for a Parents’ Choice Magazine Gold Award.

** Winner of a 2005 Parents' Choice Classic Award **** Winner of a 1998 Parents' Choice Gold Award **

Moondreamer is Priscilla Herdman's third album of music for children and families, and her tenth release overall. It's a marvelous collection of lullabies culled from a diversity of sources and lovingly rendered by what The New York Times' Stephen Holden has called "one of the clearest and most compelling voices of contemporary folk music." Moondreamer is a companion piece to Stardreamer, Priscilla's highly acclaimed and successful previous lullaby collection.

"Her clear angelic voice [is] wrapped around the ... fine and eclectic group of tunes that fit together perfectly." Publishers Weekly, September 14, 1998

"This all combines to create a listening experience that leaves you feeling safe and warm with a sense that everything will be pretty much about the same in the morning." Matt Watroba - SingOut! 43:2, Fall 1998
