IN EVERY MOON THERE IS A FACE

Author: Charles Mathes

Illustrator: Arlene Graston

Reserve at the Library

Publisher: Illumination Arts Publishing Company, Inc.,

Material: hard cover

Summary: Look carefully. For there are beautiful, magical things hidden within the things your eye might just miss. Beautiful illustrations help you discover the imagery described in this poem. This is a bedtime poem.

Type of Reading: bedtime story, read aloud book

Recommended Age: read together: 2 to 6; read yourself: 6 to 8

Interest Level: 2 to 7

Age of Child: Read with 6-year-old girl.

Young Reader Reaction: "Oh, Mama, this is so-o-o beautiful." Our daughter enjoyed lingering over the pages, especially connecting with the little girl as she moves from page to page.

Adult Reader Reaction: This is a lovely poem. It has a house-that-jack-built quality, in that it moves from element to element, but there is no particular pattern (e.g., large moon to small butterfly). It makes for more surprising reading as you turn the pages, because your mind wants to think logically, and that won't work!

Pros: This is a magically illustrated, soothing poem that's perfect for quiet reflection or bedtime.

Cons: You've got to be able to suspend reality to enjoy the poem. Otherwise, just explore the incredible painting-quality images.

Borrow or Buy: Borrow, at least. This is a beautiful book.
