Lullaby Moon is a sweet tale of mother or father and child's nightly bedtime bonding. The words flow nicely with alliteration and rhyme throughout and the illustrations are soft and fill of beautiful hues. It is also a very durable book because of the cardboard pages and soft padded cover. Great for toddlers. It is one of my sons' favorite books. I read it to them often.
The story is told in rhyme, a soothing four verse refrain that depicts the events of baby mouse and mama mouse as they proceed through end-of-the-day routines. The rhyme is traditional, but sounds natural, at least avoiding the forced rhyme scheme which so grates on the ear. The repetitive refrain is soothing, and so are the illustrations that are soft shades of blue and green and gray. The furry mice are soft and adorable. Children tend to like mice as main characters, which adds yet another pleasant factor. As the title indicates, the book is a fitting lullaby to be read at bedtime.
Not only did I love the dreamy pastel drawing, but the sweet little poem. This was my daughter's favorite book before she could speak. Every time we got to the page where they snuggled up in their favorite chair she would move a little closer. When the mice discussed their day over warm cups of milk, she would point to her bottle and grab for it. She totally got it!
