Joy Cowley's warm-hearted Kiwi version of traditional lullaby

Hush, little baby, and go to sleep,
Mama’s going to give you a woolly sheep …

Regarded by some as the mother of children’s publishing in New Zealand, it is fitting that Joy Cowley has penned this warm-hearted Kiwi version of a traditional lullaby, with words in both English and te reo Māori. From sheep to kowhai flowers, and from paua shells to silver ferns, this special picture book will be a treasured addition to any home library.  Stunningly illustrated by Andrew Burdan with pictures that could easily grace the walls of any art-lover’s home.

*   A truly beautiful gift book for new parents

*   The soothing text is a joy to read aloud, and the atmospheric illustrations are full of instantly recognisable Kiwi treasures
