Format: Paperback
This book describes the author's nighttime walks with her children during each of a year's thirteen full moons. Through these chapters the reader experiences the thrill and awe of moonlit discoveries. Reading this book to children is a wonderful way to introduce them to nature. Most children and parents who read this book will want to follow its example, and both will benefit if they do. It would be an excellent resource for elementary school teachers. Very well written and illustrated.

Sharing the joys of nature between parents and children is a rare topic. This book is a simple, yet joyful, description of a parent's decision that bedtime doesn't always take precedence over discovering nature.

My mother read this to me while we were living on a farm in southwestern Wisconsin, where this book is set, which made the stories even more important to me.

A wonderful bedtime story for any child longing to see the natural world at night.

Format: Paperback
The most delicious non-fiction book about a family who lived on a large piece of property. The mom decided to let the kids stay up and walk with her on the full moon nights. Their adventures were always filled with surprises. Most of our children will never be able to experience what those kids did, but the book is so well written that they will be able to visualize each outing.
