Kissed by the Moon

Words & Illustration by Alison Lester

This book is very special to me. It was the first book I bought for my little girl before she was even born. "Part poem, part lullaby", this book describes a parent's wish for their child to notice the world around them, take joy in the changing seasons and show love & kindness. The illustrations are simple yet filled with abundant detail. A real treasure. Thank you Alison. 

The endpaper is a soft yet moody illustration of quiet moonlit trees. Absolutely beautiful. And such a peaceful way to start and finish reading this lovely lullaby.
