In 2023, Lullaby Project Australia launched a new children's storybook and song, Lullaby Sky, written and composed by Jodie O'Regan with Emily Gann and Kerry O'Regan. This enchanting story and lullaby accompany a series of interactive displays and workshops across libraries and playgroups, and are a beautiful way for community members to take part in collaborative lullaby writing.
The project has been piloted in regional South Australia at Burra Library, Clare Library, Clare Valley Children's Centre, and surrounding playgroups, and will soon expand into libraries and other family settings statewide. The program seeks to inspire families to sing and connect through music and songwriting. Lullaby Sky books will become available for purchase in 2024.
We invite interested libraries and community service providers to get in email us to hear about ways to have Lullaby Sky program and workshops at your site.

It’s night time now.
It’s sleep time now
and we are all tucked in.
The moon and stars are in the sky
their lullabies begin.
