A grandmother in New England and her grandson in Africa are separated by distance, climates, and cultures. Yet they have two things in common: the moon that shines on them both each night, and their love for each other. The grandmother narrates memories of her grandson, revealing her longing for him, until she travels across the world to embrace him once again. Bryan Collier’s vibrant watercolor and collage illustrations in this picture book capture the variety of climates, cultures, and people in the world. Ages 4-8. (Simon & Schuster)
