This charming picture book takes the young reader into
an eastern North America forest.
Realistic animals are caught in the moonbeams as birds,
deer, fireflies, frogs, and water striders magically
play among indigenous plants.
A factual appendix at the back of the book invites
the young reader to learn more about the woodland creatures
as well as interesting facts about the moon.
This teaching aid is filled with vocabulary, science,
and creative writing lessons.
Peggy knows all about Long Island forests
as a renowned naturalist and past Trustee of Southold Town.
She will be telling stories from her childhood growing up on the North Fork.
This Saturday December 2,
from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m
Makes a greatseason gift!
“Beautifully illustrated and written with a flair for exciting curiosity, Moonglow’s fanciful escapades by cryptic nocturnal animals ignite the imagination, inviting us to turn off the outside lights and explore the nighttime drama of nature. Individual species profiles, following the “break of day,” shed the light of science on animals that get magically frisky under the spell of a full moon, Peggy Dickerson’s writing, and Cynthia Wells’ fantastic illustrations.”~ Louise Harrison
“Nature comes alive in this digital version of Moonglow. Peggy’s poetic narration enhances Cynthia’s beautiful illustrations for all, while beginning readers can enjoy the story on their own. The animated Natural History, Moon Facts and website materials/lessons give additional content for readers to explore and enrich their knowledge of the natural world.”
