Moon Shines Down

Author: Margaret Wise Brown
Illustrated by: Linda Bleck
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
ISBN: 978-1-4003-1299-3
Genre: Inspirational /children’s

We’re all familiar with the old children’s bedtime prayer:

I see the moon
And the moon sees me
God bless the moon
And God bless me.

Ms. Brown, a pioneer of children’s literature, has taken this well-known poem, and expounded on it, making an absolutely charming book for children. The book is expertly illustrated and sure to become a favorite with children and their caregivers alike.

MOON SHINES DOWN was forgotten for decades in a tucked-away trunk, but recently rediscovered, and the unmistakable voice of Margaret Wise Brown. This story book for children is soon to become a new classic, one that parents and grandparents will want to cherish for generations to come.

MOON SHINES DOWN is an excellent book that I fell totally in love with. Hardcover, with a beautifully designed dustcover, it is a book that my three-year-old will be thrilled to find under the tree this Christmas. Make sure you pick up a copy for your favorite young child. This story will thrill both of you, it is that delightful. $16.99.
