A little girl dreams that she’s all alone at sea in a tiny boat. It’s dark, and the sea is scary. Then she sees the gentle moon, the first sign of God’s love. The moon, the stars, and at last the sun lend enough light to lead her back to shore, where she realizes she was never alone at all. God has brought her safely home.
Based on a traditional children’s rhyme, Kathy Appelt’s poetic text and Debra Reid Jenkins’ imaginative and dramatic paintings, accented in gold leaf, convey a sense of mystery and wonder and make this book a perfect illustration of God’s abiding love.Appelt, Kathi, Author
