Remember those joyful summer evenings spent playing by the light of the moon?
Author Janice May Udry captures the fun frolicking in her book The Moon Jumpers, illustrated by Maurice Sendak (of Where the Wild Things Are fame).
This picture book is truly a picture book – lots of colorful, and black & white, drawings from Sendak fill the pages – many two-page spreads with no words.
And the prose by Udry captures the spirit of playing by moonlight, and the sorrow of being called inside to bed by Mom and Dad.
Highly recommended for ages 2 – 8.
