Book:Half a Moon and One Whole Star

Half a Moon and One Whole Star

Crescent Dragonwagon, Jerry Pinkney

Up above the earth so far
Hang half a moon and one whole star
Hang one whole star and half a moon;
Nighttime will be coming soon.

And while a young girl sleeps, nighttime deepens all around her—in the woods and garden, on the ocean, in the city, and on the porch, where her parents sit.

Crescent Dragonwagon's soothing, evocative poem is brought to life by the lush artwork of Jerry Pinkney in this bedtime treasure.
