A sweet lullaby-style song sung by the young Cosette in the stage play and feature film,  Les Misérables.  It's a lovely simple melody with a small range, making it perfect for beginners.

You may find the letter notes easier to play if you shift them up a bit, especially if you're on flute or recorder, as this song is quite low. Happy practice!
