Rating: 1-5 (5 is an excellent or a Starred review) 5
Format: Hardcover picture book
What did you like about the book? A gentle book that follows the moonlight from the forest, to the ocean, to the city, and finally into “your” bedroom where it disappears into morning. Stephen Savage’s signature block prints in black, white, and gray illuminate the pages with moonlight peeking through the clouds. A great night-time read aloud for those small ones just getting ready to sleep.
Anything you didn’t like about it? This was a great book about light and moonlight
To whom would you recommend this book?
Fans of other Stephen Savage books (Supertruck and Polar Bear Night) will love this newest addition.
Who should buy this book? Public libraries and parents looking for soft bedtime books
Where would you shelve it? Picture books
Should we (librarians/readers) put this on the top of our “to read” piles? No
