This wide-ranging collection of bedtime poems is an inspired baby gift that will find a treasured place on children's nightstands everywhere. (Ages 0-5)

From the hoot of an owl to the horns of the city, from children giggling in the bath to the hushed notes of a lullaby, here is an exquisite anthology that captures the universal poetry of bedtime. Expertly gathered by Jane Yolen and Andrew Fusek Peters, these sixty poems range from old favorite poets such as Alfred, Lord Tennyson, Sylvia Plath, and Eleanor Farjeon to beloved contemporary poets like Marilyn Singer, Lee Bennett Hopkins, and Children's Poet Laureate Mary Ann Hoberman. Beautifully illustrated by G. Brian Karas with richness and whimsy, SWITCHING ON THE MOON is the perfect book to share with a child to usher in a night of sweet dreams.
Back matter includes an index of first lines and an index of poets.
