★ "Composed of alluring and allusive shadows, shapes, and textures. . . . With the six-sentence text providing an almost incantatory counterpoint to the pictures' clean, geometric lines, and bold, flat colors, this is a lovely bedtime meditation on themes of universality, a shared planet, and quiet wonder."—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

★ " Muted blues and greens along with black and white are the sole colors used consistently and create a quiet mood. Simple, elegant language accentuates the peaceful tone in this poetic musing on a regular but fascinating nighttime event."—School Library Journal, Starred Review

"A beautiful tribute to the moon for bedtime—or anytime."—Booklist

"This gentle berceuse initially teases with soothing prose and intriguing visual misdirection. . . . Linocuts in blues, teals, and greens merge the Earth, sea, and sky into a dreamy continuum. . . . Sleep-resistant listeners may want to talk about places where the moonlight shines at that very minute, but a reprise of Savage's lyrical text should do the lulling trick." —The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
"Savage's lyrical bedtime book invites pajama-clad listeners into a moment of quiet wonder. Well-placed text complements the inked block prints to create a thoughtful interplay between shadow and light."—The Horn Book

"A stunning bedtime tale infused with a bit of suspense."—Kirkus Reviews
