Go To Sleep, Jessie!

Every night she does this. Ever since she moved into my room.

Go to Sleep, Jessie! is a gorgeous tale of a situation many families will relate to, from one of Australia's favourite picture book pairings Libby Gleeson and Freya Blackwood.

Gleeson's seemingly simple tale of a baby who won't sleep in spite of her big sister and parents best efforts actually holds a deeper message about sibling rivalry and sibling love.

These mixed emotions are captured perfectly in Blackwood's illustrations and read sincerely by Tara Rankine of children's theatre group, Sausage Dog Productions.
