      Comments about Kissed by the Moon:

      Bought this in a hurry for the gorgeous pictures and the interest my 5 month old showed in it. Pleasantly surprised. What a special book! I have been trying to think of wording for her upcoming naming ceremony. What better way to express what I want for my daughter.

        This is a beautiful book to buy for someone who has just had a baby.
        Reading every day to young children and giving them all the experiences in this book will prepare them well for school and learning.

                I think this is one of the most beautiful books I've ever seen; gorgeous cover, beautiful pictures, lovely poem/lullaby to read to my baby now and forever. I like it so much I bought a second copy for my sister's baby boy. A very special book.

                  This is a great gift for a new baby - written as a story book with beautiful illustrations, it's actually more like a blessing for the child - inspiring them to explore the wonderful world around us.
                  It's also a good book if you're looking for something that doesn't present the traditional nuclear family - I purchased it for a new baby who has two mothers and one father.
                  I'll definitely be giving this as a gift again

                    Beautiful illustrations with a heartfelt sentiment about the things we wish for our babies as they grow into children. Brought a happy tear to my eye.

                    The perfect gift to give to my friend who just became a mum for the first time.

                      Beautiful, simple story with gorgeous illustrations. Suitable for 0 to 3 year olds, but my 4 and 7 year olds still love it. A gorgeous gift.
