PreS-K-- A quiet study of the moon by a young girl who watches it, ``a circle like an eye,'' framed in the window of her family's car as they drive home from her grandmother's house. She is fascinated with the fact that the moon is always with her no matter how far and how fast she goes, reminiscent of Harold's ever-present moon in Johnson's Harold and the Purple Crayon (Harper, 1958) . The poetic text is tranquil; it may be too slow for some readers, but the mood that the text creates and the warmth of the illustrations, along with Schuett's masterful use of color and light, make this a good choice for bedtime reading. --Nancy Curtin, Port Washington Public Library, NY
