About The Book

Up above the earth so far
Hang half a moon and one whole star
Hang one whole star and half a moon;
Nighttime will be coming soon.
And while a young girl sleeps, nighttime deepens all around her -- in the woods and garden, on the ocean, in the city, and on the porch, where her parents sit.
Crescent Dragonwagon's soothing, evocative poem is brought to life by the lush artwork of Jerry Pinkney in this bedtime treasure.

About The Author

Crescent Dragonwagon's books for children include Half a Moon and One Whole Star and Home Place. She's also the author of several novels, a book of poetry, and cookbooks, such as Passionate Vegetarian. With her late husband Ned Shank, she is the cofounder of the Writers' Colony at Dairy Hollow in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.
