ACHUKA Book of the Day Mon 26 Apr 2021
“Friendly faces, luscious forest backdrops, and dazzling points of light dancing around a glowing moon cast a magical aura over the moment. As a new day dawns, readers are summoned to the next party. An enchanting romp sure to inspire reenactments with lucky stuffed or real animals.” KIRKUS
We loved Chickenology, from the same illustrator, also very recently an ACHUKA #BookofTheDay.
This self-authored picture book invites us into a secret world where wonders take place while the humans are away and the animals play. Striking, full-spread images of the rising moon and sun illuminate the magical way the natural cycle of the sky unites us, giving children a connection to nature they can experience from anywhere in the world.
As the sun sets, little gray rabbits are busy in their secret workshop, but what could they be making? Children eagerly follow along as the rabbits prepare for the big event, inviting all of their forest friends to the celebration. The mice, foxes, porcupines, and other forest creatures gather as the full moon rises, and finally the big surprise is revealed.
