Under the Silver Moon : Lullabies, Night Songs & Poems

We rated this book:


Every night at bedtime, little ones everywhere ask for just one more story or poem or song or almost anything to delay the inevitable. This sweet little book can help to answer that need, offering a variety of “one-mores” that are short and comfortingly familiar to many. Drawing from a variety of different cultures, Pamela Dalton has gathered bedtime songs and poems that will soothe and delight youngsters. There will be a lot of new words for youngsters to learn from some of these old familiar and not-so-familiar poems from the likes of Rudyard Kipling and Robert Louis Stevenson and Alfred Lord Tennyson. But the real strength of the book may be the stunning, detailed artwork on every page. The illustrations are rich and layered. Some seem to have so much depth, they almost look as if they they have been embroidered on the page. This is a book that will become a favorite of both those being read to and those doing the reading. It is an absolute delight for readers and listeners and those who enjoy looking at beautiful art.
