For All the Stars Across the Sky

author: Karl Newson
illustrator: Chiaki Okada

For all the stars across the sky,
Big and little and bright,
Here’s a wish from me to you,
Before we say good night.

“I wish that we could fly like birds!” says Luna when Mama asks her for her nightly wish. So off they go on an imaginary flight together, past mountaintops and fields and over the deep blue sea. Then Luna wishes they could swim like fish through the corals, shrink as small as ants on the vines, and grow as big as giants, stomping down the lane that leads to Luna’s very own bed. In a quintessential bedtime story, gentle art and a lyrical text take listeners on lighthearted flights of fancy and offer an ode to the unconditional love between parent and child.

In a tender bedtime ritual, a parent elicits wishes from her little one, sparking imaginary journeys together before it’s time to sleep.
