“This restful story with engaging illustrations captures the simple joys of hanging out together on a summer day. Family time doesn’t have to be all “go, go, go!” – sometimes the best moments are the quiet, unplanned ones. Children will enjoy seeking out the cheery red bird in each illustration, while parents will appreciate the author’s message.”

The reviewer who wrote the publishers weekly review was obviously having a bad day. This is a beautiful book capturing a mindful moment within a family. The family in this story discovers that some of the best moments are the unplanned ones. Written in jocular verse, this story has a cadence that children love to hear over and over. The illustrations are bright and bold. In addition, there is a little red bird that kids like to hunt for on each page. Love this book and highly recommend it.

A favorite in our family! I love the mindful message about enjoying the simple moments on vacation (and in life...) and the reminder to appreciate "down time" too. "A moment in time" has become a catch-phrase in our family for the days where nothing particularly exciting is going on, but we are having an enjoyable day and savoring the special little moments. Love the rhyming text - it makes reading aloud REALLY fun for the parents. I'm not surprised it won the 2012 Moonbeam Award! Makes a great gift - unique, beautifully illustrated, and off the beaten path. A fine addition to any child's bookshelf!

A Moment in Time is a wonderful window into how families can capture moments that they spend together. Pair this book with a photo album or camera and your kids can start mindfully capturing moments of their very own!

We read A Moment In Time to our 5-day pre-k/k class! Reading it as a chant the children quickly recognized the rhythm and rhyme in the book. The story and the bold text along with colorful illustrations made it easy for the children to connect to. A Moment in Time would be a great choice to read in any classroom. This book encourages wonderful conversations with children about enjoying and appreciating the simplest moments!”
