The moon comforts bedtime fears.

For Chris Raschka, the first step in his creative process is thinking about his audience - a single imaginary child who is a blend of myself, the students in my wife's classroom - and the students from two classrooms I visit regularly." Raschka, a Caldecott Medalist for The Hello, Goodbye Window and a Caldecott Honoree for Yo! Yes?, draws from any number of images or events - a poem, personal experience, or childhood recollection. He then pulls these ideas into book form. Once the story's complete, he shows it to his audience to gauge their reaction. "And then I may make some changes," he concedes. Raschka lives with his wife and son in New York City. For more information about Chris Raschka, visit: scholastic.com/tradebooksFrom School Library Journal:
PreSchool-K?Raschka's minimalist watercolors feature a benign full-moon looking down upon a small brown dog who's having trouble getting to sleep. The bedrooms (represented by yellow squares placed on a deep blue page) shine like lit windows, allowing readers and the moon to watch as each family member prepares for bed. As brother, mother, and father fall asleep, the lights go out and they become one with the night, leaving the youngest awake, lonely, and a bit afraid. But the moon hovers over the dog-child and promises to stay awake, keeping watch over him as he drifts off to sleep. In the morning, the dog repays the favor and keeps the moon safe. The careful layout of text and illustration adds greatly to the mood and poetic rhythm of this enchanting bedtime story. Some simple lines, various geometric shapes, and repeated phrases are transformed into a soothing lullabye that can be read to one special child or to a small group.?Karen K.
