9780802852267: I See the Moon

A little girl dreams that she's all alone at sea in a tiny boat. It's dark, and the sea is scary. Then she sees the gentle moon, the first sign of God's love. The moon, the stars, and at last the sun lend enough light to lead her back to shore, where she realizes she was never alone at all. God has brought her safely home.

Based on a traditional children's rhyme, Kathy Appelt's poetic text and Debra Reid Jenkins' imaginative and dramatic paintings, accented in gold leaf, convey a sense of mystery and wonder and make this book a perfect illustration of God's abiding love.

From Booklist:

Ages 3^-5. Starting with a line from a famous nursery rhyme, this original lullaby poetically describes a child falling asleep. In a tiny boat adrift in swirling waves, a frightened, lonely little girl with an angelically sweet face wonders whether anyone knows she is all alone at sea. But as she views images that speak of the presence of God--the loving face of the full moon, the stars, the dove that flies toward the shore--she is comforted. The illustrations are somber but appropriately peaceful, their subdued hues creating a sleepy-time setting for the text. Jenkins' use of delicate gold leaf to outline the stars, waves, and wind lends a rich luminosity to the paintings that aptly conveys the wonder a child might feel in the presence of the mystery of God. Shelley Townsend-Hudson
