In this delightful bedtime rhyme a young child bids good night to the moon, recalling all the familiar things surrounding her, from her pillow, her book, and her kitten to the swing outside, the robins in the trees, and the starry night. Written by award-winning novelist and poet Pamela Porter, the book is complemented by the swirling, joyful, and whimsical illustrations of Matt James. The words and music for At the Gate of Heaven ( A la puerta del cielo ), a New Mexican lullaby, are included.
