Information about the author.
Deep in the woods there used to be a house where a family once lived. Over there was the chimney. Just imagine little toes warming up beside it. And see those daffodils? Someone took special care to plant and tend to them so that every spring they blossomed as brightly as the year before.
Both the house and the family are gone now, but if you go to that spot in the woods, you'll find the chimney and the flowers. Then all you have to do is close your eyes and imagine...With Crescent Dragonwagon's poetic text and Jerry Pinkney's rich watercolors, past and present briefly touch in this remarkable book.
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.
