              I read this to my 1 yr old. Would be useful as a robust hard page book for this age. The storyline is beautifully written and can be treasured and passed on to grandies. The illustrations are everything a baby experiences for the first time in nature..just gorgeous!

                    This book is just beautiful, I've lost count of how many copies I've bought. Gorgeous lines such as 'May you, my baby, sleep softly at night, and when dawn lights the world, may you wake up to birdsong' just melt my heart. It's a lovely gift for a new baby, or any young child. I am posting my latest copy to a baby in Memphis. So proud this is written by an Australian author and illustrator.
