  1. I can’t wait to look over the rest of the titles you mention, but I had to jump in and give praise for Owl Moon. I happened to notice it at the library today and my young daughters were absolutely entranced by it when we read it before bed. My four-year-old declared: “I love this,” and had me read it again right away.

    Thank you for the other suggestions!

  2. Having a daughter is a walk between the gravity of protecting and guiding her in the realities of this world, country, city and our personal struggles -and- the gracious levity of wonder and celebration in the seasons, nature the light and the dark. Thank you for your offerings that support me in confidently and joyfully sharing the latter with her.
