About this title


The natural world provides a series of colorful scenes during the course of one twenty-four-hour period, as white moon is superseded by golden sun above a host of active animals

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1-- The pleasing rhyme, circular structure, and softly realistic quality of Greeley's illustrations will make this an often-requested read-aloud. Each double-page spread offers a four-line poem, e.g., "White is the moon/ Shining bright/ Sees an owl/ In the night." The text, always on the left, is framed in the color mentioned (in this case, white), and shows either a full moon or the sun moving through a semicircle of sky at the top, as well as a drawing of the object (here, an owl), that will be found in greater detail in a natural scene on the right. Although the final verse, "Blue is the sky/ In fading light/ Sees the moon/ Now say Goodnight!" evokes thoughts of sleep, this is more than a bedtime story: in 116 words and 10 beguiling spreads, Greeley seamlessly combines concepts about color, day and night, and the natural world. This is a lot for one book to attempt; happily, this one succeeds. One caveat: while a puffin is featured on the cover and in two of the full-page illustrations, nowhere is it mentioned or identified in the text. --Ellen Fader, Westport Public Library, CT
