Kissed by the Moon

May you my baby, sleep softly at night,
and when dawn lights the world, may you wake up to birdsong.

Kissed by the Moon is an exquisite story from beloved author and illustrator Alison Lester.

Part poem, part lullaby, this tender and gentle story celebrates all the simple wonders of the world that all babies and children should experience. Alison's beautiful and magical illustrations depict settings such as the beach, the bush, the garden, and farmland, and show the peaceful pleasures of the natural world.

Alison's reading is calm and serene and the rhyme and repetition of the words and phrases make this a perfect story to read aloud.
