Moon Babies

Putnam, July 2, 2019

Just right for fans of Emily Winfield Martin’s Dream Animals, this gorgeously illustrated story-in-verse about baby moons growing up in a celestial nursery is ideal bedtime reading and a perfect new baby gift.

In the starry dark of night,
a secret moon world comes to light.
Make a wish and you just might
visit baby moons tonight.

Follow the moon babies on their busy day from waking up in their crescent cradles, to breakfast on the Milky Way, to bundling up for moonwalks, to orbiting the earth in a lunar carousel, and more! And at day’s end, watch as the babies finish bathtime with stardust powder, snuggle up with nursery rhymes and lullabies, and finally drift off to sleep. Karen Jameson’s charming verse is a joy to read aloud, and Amy Hevron’s enchanting illustrations are simply irresistible, making this the perfect read-aloud to send little ones off to dreamland.
