"Publishers Weekly Review" by , "Using only a few graceful words per page to illuminate the dark, this bedtime gem shines its light clearly on things that matter — a home filled with books, art, music and ever-present love. Krommes's (The Lamp, the Ice, and a Boat Called Fish) astonishing illustrations are so closely intertwined with the meticulous text that neither can be isolated without a loss of meaning. The book begins, intriguingly, 'Here is the key to the house./ In the house burns a light./ In that light rests a bed./ On that bed waits a book.' That book takes the child reader up into the skies and back home again, to sleep ('dark in the song, song in the bird, / bird in the book, book on the bed'). Krommes's black-and-white scratchboard illustrations are as delicate and elegant as snowflakes, and she uses a single color, a marigold, to bring warmth to both home and stars. This volume's artful simplicity, homely wisdom and quiet tone demonstrate the interconnected beauty and order of the world in a way that both children and adults will treasure. Ages 3 — 6." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
"Review" by , "A beautiful piece of bookmaking that will delight both parents and children."
"Review" by , "This picture book will make a strong impression on listeners making their first acquaintance with literature. It is a masterpiece that has all the hallmarks of a classic that will be loved for generations to come."
"Review" by , "Krommes's breathtaking scratchboard illustrations, in black and white with accents of yellow and gold, embody and enhance the text's message that light and dark, like comfort and mystery, are not mutually exclusive, but integral parts of each other."
"Synopsis" by , A spare, patterned text and glowing pictures explore the origins of light that make a house a home, in this bedtime book for young children. Full color.
"Synopsis" by ,
This gentle, poetic bedtime story about a little girl and the friendly moon is perfect for fans of Ezra Jack Keats and Kevin Henkes

After a play date in the city, Addy heads home to the country with her family. And through the long drive, the moon seems to be following them closely—Addys faithful guardian and friend.

The comforting sense that the moon is your own personal companion is universal to childhood, and Ida Pearle has depicted it beautifully through her lyrical text and soft, sleepy cut-paper collage illustrations. This is a book that children will ask to hear every night at bedtime.
