In this warm-spirited story, a perfect day of backyard adventures for three lively boys and two mischievous squirrels unfolds, and then gently comes to an end. As moonlight fills the sky, it's time for a soothing lullaby.
Critically acclaimed author Deborah Wiles and talented illustrator Tim Bowers have created a loving and lyrical lullaby that introduces simple counting--and that will send little ones everywhere off into sweet dreams . . . under one wide sky.
