2/10/2015 Grace Metzger Forrest said: One of my favorites. Lulled my daughter to sleep night after night. There's also a video of this, great for toddlers. I personally love the way the illustrator used the moon's light interplay with the lamp and fire light of the room. So incredibly simple and so good.
