1 in stock


Critically acclaimed author Tonya Bolden teams up with award‑winning illustrator Eric Velasquez to create Beautiful Moon: A Child’s Prayer, a richly painted and emotionally complex picture book that celebrates prayer and kindness while recognizing the diversity of the world around us.

A young boy wakes. He has forgotten to say his prayers. Outside his window, a beautiful harvest moon illuminates the city around him and its many inhabitants. As the moon slowly makes its way across the heavens, the boy offers a simple prayer for the homeless, the hungry, and others.

“The book offers young readers plenty to look at, along with a simple message about the way prayer unites everyone, as the multicultural subjects in Velasquez’s gorgeous illustrations make clear.” —Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

“The diverse people sharing the night, the realistic dilemmas of the people in need, and the handsome presentation should serve well as bedtime reading for families practicing daily prayer.” —School Library Journal
