This perfect bedtime read-aloud describes that magical time, just as we’re drifting off to sleep, when the moon the moon shines brightly and life emerges from the forest.

Hello moon,
Goodbye sun.
Night is near,
Day is done.

When the sun goes down and most of us are getting ready for bed, the nighttime animals of the forest all wake up to the light of the moon. It calls to the them, from the slyest fox to the tiniest mouse, who feasts on leaves and fruit and scurries beneath the brush.

A gentle rhyming text that will appeal to the youngest child is illustrated with soft and dreamy artwork in this perfect bedtime book in the tradition of Goodnight Moon.Full-color illustrations were created with colored pencil, watercolor, and liquid acrylics. The paintings were combined digitally.

Praise & Reviews

School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1–A short, sweet, simple book for bedtime. Night is near and day is done—so who comes out when the sun goes down? Readers can explore the forest at night with owls, mice, raccoons, and foxes. For very young readers, this is a jumping-off point to explore nocturnal animals. Rhyming phrases will keep even the youngest listener engaged: “Look above, silver skies. Stir awake, open eyes. Moonlight calls, come outside, scurry pounce flutter glide.” The illustrations build to the onset of darkness, normalizing night, where there is play, eating routines, and a full range of things to discover. VERDICT Glowing illustrations support a poetic text for a visit to what goes on while children sleep –Betsy Davison, formerly at Homer Central H.S., NY
