Amazon is offering I’ll Follow the Moon (Mom’s Choice Award Honoree and Chocolate Lily Award Winner) [Kindle Edition] for FREE.
Written in simple verse in the first person, the rhythmic text is full of action and sensory detail and loaded with alliteration and onomatopoeia for an enjoyable read-aloud. Only one stanza using the word ‘eternity’ may puzzle young minds. The refrain, “I’m coming, Mama…..,” repeated on each double page spread, is soothing and reassuring of the joyful reunion to come. The atmosphere of a quiet but determined struggle to break free of the egg soon gives way to growing excitement as the turtle mingles with fellow hatchlings and catches his first tempting sensations: the smell of salt air, the sight of the moon’s glow, the gentle touch and beckoning sounds of the waves rushing to shore.
