When Stars Arise feels like a deep, contented sigh on a warm summer night. Full of rich watercolors and gentle rhyming verses about winding down at the end of the day, it’s the perfect bedtime read for little ones who have spent all afternoon exploring the natural world around them. This little story feels like being gently tucked into bed with crickets outside your window after a day in the sunshine. A great pocket-sized lullaby to pack for the cabin, or toss in a beach day bag.

— Heather, Wild Rumpus

"A stunning marriage of text and art that will linger with listeners as they slip into sleep...This melodic lullaby is warm and tender perfection."--Kirkus Reviews, starred review

Parents and children will enjoy winding down and snuggling into this slow, tender journey to bedtime.

The world grows restful, but don't sleep yet, wait until the grassy meadow is quiet and the forest creatures are hidden away. Until the farm animals are snug in the barn and the toys are tidied in their proper spots. Until the bath warms your toes and the blanket tucks you in tightly. Only when we finish our story and the stars are in the sky is it time to sleep.

Calming, lyrical rhythms, pleasing repetition and dreamy watercolors make When Stars Arise a gentle lullaby that reinforces the bedtime routine.
