"Make a wish and join Jameson's moon babies to discover a day that is out of this world. Soothing rhythms, a consistent rhyme pattern, lively rhymes, and gently playful references make this book a good bedtime read for both children and caregivers. Illustrations of pastel-hued moon babies against nighttime blue backgrounds are restful, too, but they also include details to discuss: ever watchful grammy moons, real and imagined constellation patterns, and a tiny astronaut doll tucked in every spread. A playful and soothing book for the close of day." --Kirkus Reviews

"Hevron's superb art sets the book apart from similar bedtime books. Caregivers, especially grandparents, will enjoy this soothing bedtime tale. Pair with Johanna Wright's The Secret Circus or Maurice Sendak's In the Night Kitchen for stories about hidden night worlds." --Booklist
