All is quiet, all is still as the first stars appear in the evening sky. As night closes in, the farm settles down with all the animals, big and small, knowing that now is the time to snuggle into their warm cosy beds.
Hush say the Stars, it’s time to be still. The gentle cows gather on the side of the hill. Time for sleep.
Beautifully written by Margaret Spurling with superb illustrations by Mandy Foot. A joy to read with your children right from the start.
Artwork created on Fabriano watercolour paper with water soluble graphite pencils, chalk pastel pencils, watercolour and gouache.
A delightfully, gentle story which when read in a quiet, soothing voice should have the desired effect of lulling little ones to sleep.
The repetition of text and the soft, watercolour illustrations are a perfect blend to induce peace and stillness in both reader and child.
This book is sure to be a bedtime favourite.
