We All Sleep
'Has a focus on colour and art with few words but great message'
Against pink skies kookaburra calls . . .
Acclaimed mother-and-son-team Sally Morgan and Ezekiel Kwaymullina take readers on a journey through a day, celebrating the interconnectedness of people and animals in lyrical language and sumptuous colour.
Beginning at sunrise and ending with starlight, a child observes their world. The light changes, the animals appear at their ideal time of day, plants wave in the breeze. On each page is a small companion blue bird and a hint of which animal will feature next. Artwork is colourful, simple and complex, full of pattern and life.
'Dreamers is a glorious picture book.' The West Australian
'This is a book every Aussie child should read.' Sunday Times
'Rich, busy and vital, her paintings are filled with movement as the little girl slides down the river snake's rainbow and rides the whispering wind.' The Age
' . . . a delightful story of a little girl free to roam on land, sea and in the sky.' Koori Mail
We All Sleep is a particularly Australian lullaby, featuring iconic animals and birds, doing their thing in an Australian landscape, watched by an Australian child. It offers an opportunity to introduce our native fauna and flora, while the rhythm of the language is informative and soothing. An ideal gift to send overseas, and to keep close at home. Recommended for pre- and early schoolers. And art students.
