Scholastic Australia, 2017. ISBN 9781760276331
(Age: 4+) Highly recommended. Lullaby and Goodnight is an Australian themed lullaby in picture format. It uses soft rhythmical language to gently soothe a baby or small child to sleep. The narrator speaks of their love holding tight, giving their heart and never wanting to be apart. On each page, readers will find an Australian animal and their baby. From a wombat to a koala, the illustrations are life-like and beautifully detailed.
This book will make a great gift for new parents or a child's first birthday. Parents and children will enjoy sharing the words of love while learning about Australian animals.
This story is highly recommended for readers aged 4+. There is also an accompanying CD with a recording of the lullaby sung by Australian actor and performer Miranda Tapsell.
