Synopsis

Are you a moon child?

Three little animals, curious about the bright nighttime sky, playfully interact with a beautiful full moon. Follow raccoon, owl, and otter as they find a way to snuggle in their mother’s arms under the moon’s watchful gaze.

Moon Child captures the quietness of a lullaby, and the rich illustrations glow with the magic of the natural world.

Excerpt

When I curl up tight, I fit into the moon.

I bring my knees to my chest and point my toes until I am tiny and round, moon-sized.

I am a moon child.
Nadia Krilanovich|Elizabeth Sayles

Review, Kirkus Reviews, September 15, 2010:
"Krilanovich’s striking debut will have youngsters peering out the window to see if the moon is in fact watching over them...and very likely reaching out to give it a hug."
