Children’s Book of the Year Awards 2014 – Shortlisted

Kissed by the moon by Alison Lester

Kissed by the moon is part poem, part lullaby by Australian author Alison Lester. It is a beautiful story that celebrates a baby’s wonder at our beautiful world.  It would be a lovely bedtime story.  The illustrations are just beautiful. The cover picture announces a new life, with mother and child looking over a lake with mountains in the background in night shades of purple and blue shadowed by the moon.

I hope you enjoy reading the book as much as I did and I look forward to your comments.

Kissed by the Moon has been shortlisted for the Book of the Year – Early Childhood. The Children’s Book Council of Australia will be announcing the winners on Friday, 15th August 2014.
