Scholastic, 2013. ISBN 9781742838205.
(Age: 4+) Highly recommended. Rainforest Lullaby is a lovely picture book using rhyme and images to show the sleeping Australian animals. It is highly recommended for adults to read to children aged 4+ and good for independent readers aged 7+.
Use the book to introduce a unit on Australian animals or to discuss and write poetry with older children. It could be used to identify rhyming words, recreate the story with different animals or add to the story by imitating the author.
