May the stars drip down by Jeremy Chatelain; illustrated by Nikki McClure (2014)

may theReading this book aloud is a lovely experience. I found my voice softening to silence by the final page.

Poetic in its language, May the stars is an ode to all things gentle and sleepy.

“Up above floating clouds of white, In a spray of stars you climb so high, Where light spills over from the moon. May the billowed clouds catch you.”IMG_1323

The limited colour palette and page cut-outs contribute to the sense that you are holding something very lovely in your hands.
