At This Very Moment

  • A book about all living things, including you nand me, at this very moment.


    At this very moment

    There’s a mouse

    There’s a small mouse waking up in the early morning sun.


    And at this very moment

    There’s a whale

    There’s a huge whale singing whale song deep beneath the sea.


    This is a beautifully poetic bedtime book for children ages 2 and up. Using simple but evocative language, it describes all the wonderful things that are going on around the world right now. In doing so, it asks the young readerto be present in the moment and to feel at one with the giant, magnificent organism that is our planet.



    "A lovely, quiet book that radiates calm." -  Kirkus Reviews
