From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K. A child and her cat look out the window at the moon and wonder, in easy, lilting verse, where else the moon shines?does it shine on the city beyond their window, and at the poles, and in the woodland as well? The answer is, of course, that it does, and its illuminations are bodied forth in full-color illustrations done in a batiklike technique. The earth tones are punctuated and accented by brighter colors. The texture of the pictures gives them a depth that draws readers beyond their semiglossy surface and yields an antique effect. Readers do not see the girl's face, so the atmosphere of the pictures takes on a greater appeal and interest. While this quiet tour does not put the child in the story to sleep, the reassurance of a world at peace, united by the ever-present moon, surely leads the way to bedtime.?Ruth K.

From Booklist:

Ages 5^-8, younger for reading aloud. A young girl wonders if everyone sees the same moon in the night sky, then goes on to ask more questions: "Is the moon that shines on animals and trees / the same bright moon that my black cat sees?" Do night animals of the woods see the same moon glow as polar bears, caribou, and snowshoe hares in the land of snow and ice? With watercolor washes lending a shimmering quality, Garrison's collagraphs give readers a feel for night lit by moonlight, and even the youngest readers can spot the materials she used to give the pictures texture and depth--paper, strips of fabric, and wood. The poetic text and rich illustrations make this a wonderful choice for reading aloud at school or at home, especially at bedtime: it's a book that young ones will want to hear more than once and handle even more often.
