From the vibrant morning sun to the echoing mountains, the waving trees, and finally the dreamy moon, a young boy finds joy and beauty in the natural world around him. This warm, richly cadenced adaptation of a classic nursery rhyme is just right for laptime, naptime, or bedtime.
"Fiore's art is vivid, evocative, and well painted....A lovely mood piece for sharing." -Kirkus Reviews

Jonathan London is the creator of twenty-three books about lovable and enduringly popular Froggy. He is also a poet and a novelist. Jonathan and his wife live in Graton, California.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2?This quiet, reflective book consists of London's 13 variations on the traditional verse. The catchy rhythm and rhyming patterns and their predictability invite listeners' response. Each verse has its own double-page spread, allowing the art to extend the simple text. Each textured watercolor painting features a young boy in a different setting interacting with the sun, flowers, mountains, stars, etc. Over the course of his day, from sunup to moonrise, he enjoys what he sees while hiking, swinging, kayaking, etc. Nothing disturbs this Garden of Eden?not another creature or sound. While this may prove too static for some readers, it will encourage others to spin dreams, as suggested in the last verse: "Hello moon...will you dream with me?"?Virginia Golodetz, St. Michael's College, Winooski, VT
