The Moon Shines Down by Margaret Wise Brown

The Moon Shines Down
Margaret Wise Brown (Author)

Laura Minchew (Additional Verses)

Linda Bleck (Illustrator)
Thomas Nelson
ISBN 9781400312993

This book was found in a trunk 65 years after the author passed away, with additional verses crafted by Laura Minschew to be similar in style and structure to Wise Brown's own. It tells the story of the moon being over the whole earth, and as we pray for God to bless the moon we can pray for him to bless those whom the moon shines upon also. It is a book that will help children pray for other children around the world.

One of her other books, Goodnight Moon, has sold over 14 million copies and is available in dozens of languages. This book, now in print for the first time, is sure to become a children's picture book classic. So pick it up and share it with the children in your life.

(This is the first book I have reviewed as part of the Thomas Nelson Blog Reviewers program.)
