This is a very nice book for new readers. The story i about all the animals of a barn getting read to go to bed and the moon being the guiding light for them. The book goes from numbers one through ten and counts out different animals and there is a star above each one so that new reader can count along with the book. Overall a lovely book that you can read to your child before bedtime. ( )

When the Moon Smiled is a cute counting book that can double as an introduction on nocturnal and diurnal animals. The farm animals who should have been asleep were awake while the animals who should have been awake were still asleep. The moon does his duty and makes everything right. He lights a star for each animal that needs to go to sleep or be awake. The illustrations are cute and the book features cutouts for the stars. Great for a younger crowd. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0763622095, Hardcover)

Petr Horacek’s vividly colorful illustrations and multiplying die-cut stars make for a bedtime counting book that twinkles with charm.

Night has come to the farm, but the moon is not smiling. The animals are all out of place, and to set things right, the moon needs to light the stars, one by one. As the number of yellow die-cut stars increases on each page, little readers will be eager to count them (and to count all the animals, too). With appealingly childlike artwork in rich glowing hues, this warm, clever counting book will bring smiles all around.

One by one the moon lights up stars to put to sleep the animals who sleep at night and to wake up the animals that should be awake, from one dog to ten moths.
