Review of Beautiful Moon, by Dawn Jeffers

Beautiful Moon is an evoking, beautifully illustrated children's picture book about a little girl who wants the day to last forever so that she may play and play. She loves the moon, when everything is cool and fresh, but it's only during the day that she can play with her bike and bunny to her heart's desire. But then, it gets too hot, she gets too tired... and guess what? As much as she'll miss the sun, she's looking forward to her beautiful moon once again!
It's okay to play, but at the end of the day, even an active little girl looks forward to a time of rest.
The illustrations, done in soft colors, are lovely and sweetly capture the essence of day and night, the sun and the moon, bringing forth a mood of serenity. Beautiful Moon makes a wonderful bedtime story, sure to inspire calm dreams.
The text is simple and bilingual, with its English and Spanish versions on each page.
