Review

"Marino's breathtaking panoramas make an already powerful story sing."
(Publishers Weekly, starred review )

"The textured mixed-media art paired with the flowing text elevates this title above most missing-mama fare ... Radiating warmth and comfort, this distinguished title strikes home."
(Kirkus,Starred Review, April 1, 2012 )

"Heartfelt and sincere, yet never cloying, this will work well one on one or in story hours."
(Booklist, March 1, 2012 )

Absolutely charming book in every way. I have bought all of Gianna Marino's books for my grand daughter and they are always sure to please for a very long time. Her illustrations are so beautifully detailed and her perspective on the animals is always so original. This is a bittersweet story about a mom and her daughter elephant. the anxiety of seperation, the trust of a reunion and the joy of finding one another again - at the moon. Gorgeous.

Format: Hardcover
The land is dry, and Mama must leave Little One to ask the skies for rain. It's important, but Little One is worried and doesn't want Mam to go. "You will feel my love in everything around you," Mama reassures. In the wind, Mama will sing. Her love will be in the warmth of the sun; it will twinkle in the brightest star. And she promises they will be reunited in the moon, "where the sky touches the earth," after the rains come.

"Meet Me at the Moon" is lovely both in word and art. Author/illustrator Gianna Marino perfectly captures the love between a mother and child, and gently broaches the subject of temporary separation. Exquisite illustrations in oranges, yellows and blues are a delight that you'll want to peruse over and over again. This is one of my favorite picture books of the year. Make sure to add it to the top of your "to-own" list.

This book jumped out at me on a table of hundreds of books. The art, design, and story are incredible. I made a $25 bet with my husband that this one will win a Caldecott.

The illustrations are beautiful, really stunning. The story is sweet, but a little sappy and falls short of conveying the deeper meaning that it seems to be striving for. Mama elephant loves baby elephant, but their land is dry, so Mama elephant must leave to ask the sky for more rain. Other members of the African plains look out for Baby elephant and Mama elephant tells Baby that he will know her love by the moon. After the rain falls, Mama elephant and Baby are reunited. The story is a sweet but awkward message about the depths of a mother's love. Despite the shortcomings of the prose, the beautiful illustrations make this picture book totally worthwhile.
