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.

A new moon is born every 28 days, but what does a baby moon do all day? Make a wish and join Jameson’s moon babies to discover a day that is out of this world. Sample a breakfast bottle with milk that flows from the Milky Way. Stand by as the baby moons take a moonwalk—but “wobble-bobble, step and stumble. / Babies try but take a tumble.” Join them as they go into orbit on their favorite playground ride, the carousel, and stack moonstones to build castles in the sky.
