I get to share another great book published by Candlewick Press with poems collected by Jane Yolen and Andrew Fusek Peters with illustrations by G. Brian Karas. If you don’t know already I am addicted to poetry, I write it, I read it, I love it. Now with Switching on the Moon: A Very First Book of Bedtime Poems I am able to share that love of poetry with my children at bedtime.
Switching on the Moon: A Very First Book of Bedtime Poems has a great collection of poetry perfect for little ones, and is recommended for ages birth to five. My oldest is eight year old and enjoys the poems as well, so who knows if you have an older child that loves poetry they may enjoy these as well.
This book was released in September 2010 and our family has had the pleasure to enjoy it as long as we have enjoyed Tuck Me In from Candlewick Press. Amazing children book that you must add to your collection this holiday season!
Description Taken From Site
From the hoot of an owl to the horns of the city, from children giggling in the bath to the hushed notes of a lullaby, here is an exquisite anthology that captures the universal poetry of bedtime. Expertly gathered by Jane Yolen and Andrew Fusek Peters, these sixty poems range from old favorite poets such as Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Sylvia Plath, and Eleanor Farjeon to beloved contemporary poets like Marilyn Singer, Lee Bennett Hopkins, and Children’s Poet Laureate Mary Ann Hoberman. Beautifully illustrated by G. Brian Karas with richness and whimsy, SWITCHING ON THE MOON is the perfect book to share with a child to usher in a night of sweet dreams.
