      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.

        Comments about Kissed by the Moon:

        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.

            This book would make a beautiful gift for someone who has just had a baby. Babies need to hear beautiful, lyrical language, rhyme and pattern, and this book is just perfect.

                    My 2 year old boy loves this book before bed. No real narrative (more of a poem) but still sustains interest. The illustrations are wonderful.
