Sarah, 6, has on only her pj bottoms (silky ones that she rubs when she sucks her thumb) and her hair bears just the remembrance of ponytails and bows. She climbs up into my lap and curls into her comfy spot like an old cat. As she sucks her thumb with one hand, she uses the other to pick through the books on the side table. She finds Hello, Harvest Moon and unearths it from the pile, ignoring the clatter of the other books falling to the floor.

A niggling complaint about the "facts" of the book ("The illustration look like New England ...and sea turtles nest at the furthest north in Virginia") suggests the reviewer has read the book and missed the experience.

Einstein, for whom facts held some sway, nonetheless thought "Imagination...is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world." I think one of my fellow reviewers has missed the magic of 'Hello, Harvest Moon' for the trees. The book is a marvelous accomplishment.
