My little girl is fascinated with the moon, she often wants to go outside to see the moon and stars shining at night time. She is equally as excited to see it in the sky during the day too, where she keeps track of whether it’s waxing or waning. Sometimes I wonder if I have a future astronomer in my home!
Goodnight Baby Moon is a beautiful bedtime story featuring a stunning light-up LED moon on the cover. In other words, this book is perfect for my daughter and has been a popular choice for many nights now.
The story follows a family of inquisitive rabbits as they notice the different phases of the moon. It’s told in short rhyming verse and is wonderfully illustrated with deep blues and purples along with the rabbit’s dark shadows to show off the world at night.
Being a board book it’s safe for even the smallest little hands to hold and enjoy, and it won’t be long before the kiddies know where to turn the lovely light-up moon on the cover on too! Reading and learning about how the moon goes away but always comes back is also an important lesson for our children to learn, since it mirrors the role we as parents play in their lives too – we may go away but we will always come back.
Goodnight Baby Moon is a special book that inquisitive young minds will enjoy reading together with you. Given its beautiful cover and charming story it would also make a wonderful gift to any new mom or mom-to-be.
Goodnight Baby Moon is available at a recommended retail price of R190 from bookstores and online retailers now.
Thanks to Penguin Random House for inspiring our little astronomer to keep on learning.
