Natalie Mooney

Natalie Mooney is a Cairns local, first-time author of her picture book, Please Don’t Cry. Inspired by her two children, Please Don’t Cry is a lullaby for infants, providing a modern and diverse book for families to help settle their little ones to sleep.

As a mum and school teacher, Natalie can see first hand, the benefits of reading to children from birth. She believes we all know how great it is to read to children, so why not start as early as possible? They may tear a few pages, wriggle around and even leave the room, but there’s nothing to lose and so much to gain by spending precious time every day sharing the magic found inside every book.
