    Just a beautiful inviting book of poems, simple dreamy illustrations set the mood for bedtime cuddling.

    Relax with your child and together share a trip through a dimension of rhyme while reading these charming poems. Switching on the Moon consists of three sections, the first section is called "Going to Bed" the second "Sweet Dreams and the third "In the Night" for a total of 60 poems in all. These are the sweetest poems you can read to a child. The poems are short so an infant will find the rhyme and rhythm delightful with just the right amount of stimulation. An older child will find it effortless to read along and will quickly memorize the short poems. This is a book a child will ask for at bedtime often so be prepared to read it for years to come. The hardcover is great for those toddlers who like to read on their own and the soft illustration on the front cover is sure to remind your child these are special bedtime stories. My favorites poems in the book are "The Bath-time Pirate" and "Naughty Soap Song." two great poems to read before bath-time, with a promise to read the rest later, will have your child in and out of the tub in no time at all. The illustrations although simple are beautiful and not to bright which helps set the bedtime mood. I loved reading all the poems in Switching on the Moon, they are a mix of bath-time, teeth brushing, dreams, tooth fairies, twinkling stars and so much more, a few are classics with a little twist, making them all unique. I absolutely recommend this book to all parents and grandparents, a book for all ages 0-99, as adults will find the poems comforting and enchanting as well.
