Everybody's Story

Book of the Week

The Everybody’s Story Children’s Library will highlight a book selection each week from the new library. This book will be placed on the new library book shelf for all to see and check out.

This week’s selection is “Beautiful Moon: A Child’s Prayer” by Tonya Bolden.

About the book: A young boy wakes. He has forgotten to say his prayers. Outside his window, a beautiful harvest moon illuminates the city around him and its many inhabitants. As the moon slowly makes its way across the heavens, the boy offers a simple prayer for the homeless, the hungry and others.

Critically acclaimed author Tonya Bolden teams up with award-winning illustrator Eric Velasquez to create a richly painted and emotionally complex book that celebrates prayer and kindness while recognizing the diversity of the world around us.
