From School Library Journal:

Kindergarten-Grade 3–Through the voice of a girl, readers see the breathtaking transformation from dark to dawn, from light back to night. The child is restless in the darkness and wishes that the day would never end. Magically, the Moon smiles and disappears. The Sun comes back and after she has plenty of opportunity to play, the girl gets too hot, making her tired and aware that all things need to rest and start over. This is a good picture book to introduce children to the concept of cycles in nature. The illustrations predominantly focus on the child' thoughts and feelings. Readers are always connected to the sky through a great range of blues, indigos, and sunset colors. Though there are interesting descriptions in the narration, the reading in both languages can be flat at times. A quiet, reflective read, perhaps best shared at bedtime.–Irania Macías Patterson, Public Library of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County, NC
