The Moon Shines Down

If you are a Mom you have probably read "Goodnight Moon" about a 1,000 times. You have every word memorized. Just picking up the book brings back the memories of snuggling up with your sweet one after a bath. How sweet they smell just after their bath all warm and cuddly in their pajamas. Curled up beside you with their bedtime cuddly.

Don't you just love Margaret Wise Brown for creating these special memories for you and your child? I do! Now I am so glad that one of her manuscripts has been discovered and was recently published. The Moon Shines Down was discovered in an old trunk on her Vermont farm. That is pretty incredible to me considering Ms. Brown died nearly 56 years ago.

This beautifully illustrated book reminds me of the song that says, "Jesus loves the little children. ALL the children of the world."

I think it is really special that this book arrives just in time for the arrival of my precious twin nieces. I intend to give them this special book for their bookshelf. I hope that this new book which is based on a classic prayer which says "God Bless the Moon and God Bless Me" will be a memory maker for them and my sweet sister like "Goodnight Moon" was for me and my boys.
This book will definitely be going in my "gift closet" for new babies in my life.
Buy the book here: Christian Book or Amazon
