I picked this book up because my daughter recently asked me about the moon following us around while we were running errands. I tried to explain how big the moon was and how far away we were from it as best I could. While this title doesn’t really address any of those things, it gives justification to those little curious minds who are oh-so observant.
Pearly uses paper collage to create stunning illustrations of marbled papers to represent the the sunset, the night sky, and the world all around a little girl and her family as they head home for the day and get ready for bed. It is a sweet nighttime story with some stunning illustration.
