PreS—On a fall evening after dinner, a mother and son put their coats on over pajamas and head out into their city neighborhood in search of the moon. A game of hide-and-seek ensues with the moon dipping behind clouds and tall buildings. "We crane our necks up to the sky, but it's hiding. Where is it? Oh…there it is! The moon! We stop and look, but as we walk, it hides again." The two continue on their walk with the sights and sound of the city as a backdrop. The moon is spotted a couple of times before finally reaching home. "I climb into bed and see the moon. 'Can we keep the curtain open?' Mama says yes, and whispers good night." The text is spare yet effective. Gómez's full-spread illustrations are gorgeous and set the tone with a soft, muted palette. Children will love poring over all the details in the cityscapes—the people and animals on the street and inside the lit-up apartments as mother and son stroll through the community. While the mother and son are red-haired and white, there is a diverse array of people in the background. VERDICT A quiet, soothing bedtime offering that works as a small group read-aloud and one-on-one. An additional purchase for most collections.—Megan Kilgallen, Packer Collegiate Institute, Brooklyn
