The moon is coming with us!

Who doesn’t remember spotting the moon through the car window⎯and feeling happy that the Universe’s night-light was coming with us like a loyal friend?
Tender and reassuring, this bedtime book brings together the light-hearted, lyrical lure of Donna Conrad’s words with Don Carter’s colorful, tactile illustrations to capture a wonder-filled adventure to Grandma’s house. With a few sweet giggles, SEE YOU SOON MOON is a poetic lullaby that will soothe your children as they get ready to travel, leave home, make transitions, or peacefully, go to sleep.

A book to treasure, generation by generation.

“Conrad captures a quintessential childhood experience … delightful … a charmer.”

–School Library Journal

“Up, over, under, around… vibrant… bright… a good choice.”

–Booklist

“Poetic prose rife with pleasant repetition, jaunty descriptions, and gentle humor {and} eye-catching, irresistibly tactile 3-D illustrations.”

–Publishers Weekly

“About taking a little bit of home with us… unfamiliar surroundings don’t have to feel completely strange.”

–Healing Stories Picture Books

{Carter’s} images have all the sweetness and inviting presence of cake frosting… Conrad’s simple, easy text has a soothing quality {with} just enough sense of excitement… Readers will hanker for a return trip.”                       

–Kirkus Reviews
