Beautiful Moon, A Child’s Prayer
by Tonya Bolden, illustrated by Erick Velasquez
Abrams Books for Young Readers, 2014
The words and illustrations together show how a boy’s simple prayers impact many in his community. Beautifully rendered it also shows that life goes on, reminding us to take each day at a time and do the best we can. A moving bedtime story sending readers to sweet dreams of gratitude. I’m not saying enough about this book; it’s inspiring, touching the heart deeply.
