The illustrations take the young reader into an eastern North American forest. Realistic animals are transformed by the moonbeams as birds, deer, fireflies, frogs and water striders magically play among the indigenous plant life.
A factual appendix at the back of the book invites the young reader to learn more about the woodland creatures as well as interesting facts about the moon. This teaching aid is filled with vocabulary, science and creative writing lessons.
