'Featured in The Bookseller's January 2022 previews.' The Bookseller

'A star-sprinkled, poetic lullaby with tender, frothy pictures full of babies, of different races, being cuddled by their mothers and fathers. One to calm tiny children.' The Sunday Times

'This dreamy, unrhymed lullaby for the tiniest listeners is based on a song from the author’s own childhood. Illustrated in soft moonlit tones, it’s filled with smiles, stars and a sense of boundless love.' Guardian

'It is a beautifully illustrated book with a calming poetic text. A great choice that we’ve been enjoying as part of our night time reading.' Books Up North
