And If the Moon Could Talk



As much as I have enjoyed reading Goodnight Moon to all three of my boys, we are ready to move on to another dreamy, magical, goodnight book. And If the Moon Could Talk is a stunning, color-saturated, glowing picture book with a lulling cadence. I could look at it forever. I will not tire of it. Not even after the next three years have passed, and Leif no longer wants to read the same book over and over. I'll have to read it to myself as I snuggle into my warm bed with my stack of books.

I originally purchased And If the Moon Could Talk due to adoring the illustrator's work in Isabelle and the Angel, another favorite picture book. Misadventures of Gaspard and Lisa is the next book series on my list to check out!

Heidi,
Remember I asked you about when you read for pleasure? I followed your advice and joined a book club. We met for the first time tonight, and I completed my first book for the year late this afternoon. It is amazing what accountability will do! Thanks for the advice! On to the next book...

Oh, I am so glad to hear that! When you find a book club that is a really good fit, it is an amazing experience. Ours has been going for almost four years. I was pregnant with #2 when we started. 7 babies have been born to members since we started. :) It is such a blast! We talk books, but we spend a lot of time talking about our lives and other things that are important to us. And it is a *great* way to motivate reading! I'm really happy for you.
