Staff Reviews

Nighttime comes to the forest too slowly for Rabbit to stay awake, but while he sleeps, the moonlight comes out to play. Eye-catching acrylics (2-5).


— From Nature - Science - Weather


Rabbit waits for the moon.
But the moon takes its time,
so Rabbit hops back to his burrow and goes to sleep.
What happens in the world when Rabbit isn’t looking?
Well . . . magic.
And moonlight. . . .
The goats on the mountainside see it.
The deer, birds, and raccoons see it.
Even the fish see it.
And finally, happily,
Rabbit does, too.
Do you?
