Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Wendy Mann
Looking out at the moon from her window, a child wonders whether everyone can see this moon? From a forest filled with animals to a brightly-lit city, the moon shines down on the world. As the moon illuminates lands near and far, the child discovers a wonderful aspect of the moonlight. The gentle poetry of the story is matched with warm illustrations that reflect the wonder of life around us.

PreS-K-A child and her cat look out the window at the moon and wonder, in easy, lilting verse, where else the moon shines-does it shine on the city beyond their window, and at the poles, and in the woodland as well? The answer is, of course, that it does, and its illuminations are bodied forth in full-color illustrations done in a batiklike technique. The earth tones are punctuated and accented by brighter colors. The texture of the pictures gives them a depth that draws readers beyond their semiglossy surface and yields an antique effect. Readers do not see the girl's face, so the atmosphere of the pictures takes on a greater appeal and interest. While this quiet tour does not put the child in the story to sleep, the reassurance of a world at peace, united by the ever-present moon, surely leads the way to bedtime.-Ruth K. MacDonald, Bay Path College, Longmeadow, MA
