The Moon Shines Down


The Moon Shines Down by beloved children’s author Margaret Wise Brown takes readers on a trip around the world through rhyming verse. From the Netherlands, Switzerland, France, and England to Africa, Australia, and the Far East, a little koala companion guides young readers through nighttime landscapes as the moon shines down on children all over the world. The bright and bold illustrations of Linda Bleck bring to life the poetic lines based on the classic verse from a children’s sampler, “I see the moon and the moon sees me. God bless the moon and God bless me.”
